The final topic for our theme of Weightlifting for the month of May is a "Play Them or Sit Them" case scenario. Please review the following and let us know how you would approach this athlete!
You are covering a professional weightlifting competition. A 24 y/o M attempts a personal record deadlift and immediately grimaces and drops the bar. As he attempts to “walk it off” and reassure you he’s fine, you notice that he seems unable to dorsiflex his right foot. He has one more lift to attempt for a $25,000 prize. Do you let him attempt the lift or do you recommend he withdraw from the competition?
