The Russian lifter is recuperating in hospital.

A Russian powerlifter champion's attempt to squat 400kg (880lb) turned disastrous as he will have to learn to walk again after he suffered broken knees and injured his quadricep muscles.   

Alexander Sedykh was competing in the World Raw Powerlifting Federation (WRPF) European Championships, near Moscow, when he suffered grievous injuries. 

Sedykh underwent an immediate surgery, which lasted six hours, for his fractured knees and detached quadricep muscles, Daily Mail quoted Yahoo News reports.

In the horrifying video from the competition, Sedykh can be seen shaking as he holds the 400kg weight on his shoulders. However, he goes on to attempt the strenuous squat for a brief moment before his knees break and Sedykh can be seen screaming in pain.

The Russian lifter, who is recuperating in hospital, said in an interview, "The main thing is that I must lie motionless in bed for two months. Then I'll be taught how to walk again."

Not revealing whether he planned to continue his weightlifting career, Sedykh added, "It'll take time to recuperate. I've had my quadriceps re-sewn and my knees put back together."

In a similar incident last year, weightlifter Yaroslav Radashkevich suffered a broken leg when he tried to squat 250kg at the Eurasian Weightlifting Championship in Russia.
