Ben Garard Weightlifting Fail!

Australian CrossFit athlete Ben Garard was lucky to escape any major injury during a weightlifting competition in Sydney, Australia this week after fainting while clean & jerking 150 kilograms!

In his final lift of the day, Garard successfully cleaned the weight, however, before beginning the jerk motion, he collapsed backwards with the barbell falling on top off him.

Luckily, Garard walked away without any major injury, and told fans via Facebook a few hours later he was doing fine.
