Welcome to the latest edition of Caption This. That's Georgia's Arsen Kasabiev looking for a little help after he failed to clean and jerk 222 kilograms (about 489 pounds) in weightlifting's 94-kilogram (about 207 pounds) class. Kasabiev finished fourth.

Feel free to supply a suggested caption in the comments section. I will make some selections tonight.
