Massive Misload: Ed Coan Injured...

Lifting at the World Powerlifting Federation Championships today in Las Vegas, Nevada Ed Coan had been scheduled to try for a history making 2500-pound total. Coming out for his first attempt in the squat, Coan had called for 430 kg (947 pounds), and was buried by the weight--shocking everyone, until it was discovered that the bar had been misloaded to 470 kg (1036 pounds). The bar was then reloaded to the correct weight, and proving once again what a true champion he is, Coan came back and made the lift, despite suffering an injury to his right thigh. The injury ended Coan's squats as well as his bid for the record total, but he still benched and then turned in a token performance in the deadlift.
