Tuesday proved to be a less-than-great day in London for a couple members of the Olympic team from Germany.
Two events made headlines for the country after some scary, funny and unfortunate mishaps were caught on camera.
The weightlifting competition turned out to be disappointing and quite dangerous for one German weightlifter, Matthias Steiner.
According to Associated Press, as Steiner was lifting 432 pounds on his second lift, he buckled under the weight and the bar came crashing down on his neck and head.
Luckily, he wasn't immediately threatened with major injuries, but medical personnel were called to the stage to assist him and take him to the hospital to be checked out after the incident.
German officials told Associated Press that he was disappointed, had some back pain but no threatening injuries and did not complete the third lift for obvious reasons.
Germany suffered another flub Tuesday, this time involving the member of the diving team.
Stephan Feck made a disappointing, but funny dive into the water. After seeing his dive, you can't help but feel a little bit sorry for him.
In Feck's second attempt at the men's 3m springboard preliminary round, he landed flat on his back in the water.
There was nothing graceful about Feck's dive, earning him zeroes from the judges and reportedly earning him last place out of all 29 diver, according to Yahoo .
Yahoo cites a source saying the awkward landing hurt Feck and that he completed another dive, but then withdrew.

As for other Olympic accidents of the day, Canadian Simon Whitfield withdrew from the triathlon after losing control of his bicycle, smashing into a guardrail and needing stitches, according to Yahoo .
