I recall seeing a video of a guy whose knee collapsed behind him a while back and he came down like a ton of bricks, but I can't find it anywhere. But I can't find too much on Youtube anyway. It must not be that common.
Ok. I was just stunned that the human shields were so quick to respond, it was almost as if they had seen this before...
Man, that Hungarian video is hard to watch.

The weightlifter starts to lift the weights from the ground to first his shoulders and then over his head. He slips on what appears to be a wet floor and his elbow bends funny.
He yelps out but then is able to regroup pretty quick and basically put the weights down without anything serious happening.. thank goodness!
You should check it out though.. it's not bad.

After saying "stop showing this" a couple of times, they go and describe it from the last angle.

I liked how the Chinese swept in to cover anything unpleasant.
Well, hasnt that been the story of this Olympics?
