Shawn Rhoden Died

Tragedy in the universe of bodybuilding and bodybuilding. Shawn Rhoden has died at the age of 46 after suffering a heart attack, which has been very tragic news for lovers of this practice that is increasingly widespread in the world.

Shawn Rhoden was considered a reference in bodybuilding after becoming in 2018 the oldest winner of the prestigious Mr. Olympia contest , which he took with 43 years and 5 months.

However, the last stretch of his life has not been particularly good until the sad news of his death from a heart attack has been known. Shawn had remained almost unknown in recent months, away from the spotlight and the competitions of this practice.

In fact, this sudden disappearance came after being related to rumors of an alleged accusation of rape and sexual abuse. This fact showed that Rhoden was not going through his best moment. However, his name fell back into the gloom of oblivion until now the sad event has been made known.

Both his coach, Chris Aceto, and his regular promoter, Dan Solomon, have confirmed the terrible news of Shawn Rhoden’s death from a heart attack. This Jamaican athlete who started an incredible physical change in 2008 going in just a decade from becoming an overweight person to one of the best bodybuilders in the world and winning the prestigious Mr. Olympia.

In that 2018 edition, Rhoden made history twice, since not only did he manage to become the oldest person to win the contest, but he also broke an unstoppable hegemony, that of  Phil ‘The Gift’ Heath, who was pursuing the challenge to match the wound eights  Ronnie Coleman and Lee Haney. A result that changed the history of bodybuilding.

Rhoden entered this practice in the 1990s and had to cope with his addiction to alcohol to get his career off the ground in 2011. At that time he managed to finish in eleventh place in the Mr. Olympia of that edition. Only a year later he would reach the third position, which would be the prelude to his victory in 2018.

A year later, his downfall began after receiving that complaint of sexual harassment from another bodybuilder in Utah, which caused his wife to ask for a divorce and was unable to compete for a while, although he was never formally convicted of this murky matter. Now, his death has shocked the world of bodybuilding. Even the legendary Rich Gaspari wrote an emotional message on social media: “It is very sad to hear his passing. He had always been a gentleman to me. Shawn had one of the most aesthetic physiques in bodybuilding. My condolences to his family.
