WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES

European champion Karapetyan was one of the favourites in the 77kg (169lbs)

Yet an horrific hyperextension to his left elbow has ended his Olympics

The 20-year-old suffered the injury while performing the clean and jerk 

As the 195kg (429lbs) weight crashed to the mat, Karapetyan took evasive action

Medical officials rushed to attend to the crestfallen athlete 

Kazakhstan's Nijat Rahimov was the eventual winner

The 20-year-old was one of the favourites for the 77kg (169lbs) and strode onto the stage with the confidence befitting a European champion and lifted the vast weight onto his broad shoulders.

But when he attempted the clean and jerk, his left arm gave way and he had to take evasive action.

All was going well for Andranik Karapetyan during his second attempt to lift 195kg

But as he propelled the vast weight vertically, the pressure told on his left limb

The pain clear for all to see on his face, the unfortunate Karapetyan lets go in agony

The Armenian was favourite in his weight class and looked in great shape for a medal

As the vast weight crashed to the mat, medical officials rushed to attend to the unfortunate young Olympian.

Seconds earlier, he had appeared a certainty for a medal - which would have been Armenia's first of this Olympic Games - but his dreams were cruelly shattered in the most devastating circumstances.

Early suggestions were that the Armenia had suffered a dislocated elbow.

Karapetyan was later seen being carried in to an ambulance on a stretcher on a saline drip. His Armenian team-mates and the coaching staff all appeared very shaken up by the incident.

Kazakhstan's Nijat Rahimov was the eventual winner, snatching victory from China's Lu Xiaojun with Mohamed Ihab Youssef of Egypt taking bronze.
