My fav is this one from 1977 Powerlifting World Championships. Paul Jordan chasing Larry Pacifico
19 min in it starts

Jordan first attempt 694lbs - barely gets it. No way he has even 700lbs that day
2nd attempt - jumps up to 755lbs for a record, not even close. Obviously.
3rd attempt jumps up to 761lbs to try to beat Pacifico and blows his knee apart lol.
Loved that video

Reminds me of my first meet minus the injury. Hit my bench opener. Then tried to close the gap with the guy that beat me on squat by taking a big jump and got 2 reds for my ass leaving the bench. He smoked his 2nd which tied my opener so I went full send on my 3rd and bumped it up another 12.5kg. lol. Couldn't even get it off my chest hardly.

Needles to say I didn't win that one. Lol. The dude that beat me went 727.5/363.7/688.9 that day in the 198 class. So he would've beat me anyways by a good 200lbs. The same guy broke a 800lbs squat at the Arnold 4 months after that. He was a freak.

I never watch "fails" vids. Call me superstitious. I've seen to many bad injuries and sustained a few myself to watch someone experience it.
