Mattie Rogers is on Team USA and a record-breaking weightlifter. But she's now becoming better known for a training session this past Monday that didn't go quite so well.

After lifting the weight bar over her head, she dropped it down onto a stand - where it promptly rolled forward and smashed into the plate glass window at the front of the gym.

A sheepish Rogers took the weightlifting fail in stride - posting videos of the incident that quickly went viral.

In fact, it was viewed so much that Rogers seemed just a little peeved that she got more attention for her one weightlifting fail than her many accomplishments in the field.

The 20-year-old Rogers recently broke records for her 69 kg weight class for the 105 kg snatch and 133kg clean-and-jerk at the 2016 USA Weightlifting Junior Nationals

She also tweeted #itsoverletsmoveon and: "So happy so many people are learning about our sport, but can I go back to not having a billion notifications so I can use my social media."
