Man, there was a lot of drama at the Oceania Weightlifting Championships in Samoa.

In order for his New Zealand teammate, Richard Patterson, to earn a spot for the Olympics Tevita Ngalu sacrificed himself and lifted with a torn left quad muscle.

Full story here.

Update: The CrossFit Journal has a free article about the story (Patterson is a CF affiliate owner).
