At the Irish Powerlifting Oganisation's National Championships over the weekend, the strongest men and women in the country were on show, putting on a display of incredible toughness and power.

Tommy Dolan, one of the competitors, was attempting to squat 280kg when he suffered a very nasty injury, which was captured on video and does not make for pleasant viewing. If you're of a sensitive disposition, look away now.

Dolan suffered a tear of the quadriceps, which apparently came clean off the bone, causing the snapping sound that can be heard in the video. According to an update from The IPO on Facebook, Tommy is on the mend, but is still in hospital in considerable pain as a result of the injury he suffered. Here's hoping that he makes a speedy recovery.
