Huge loss for bodybuilding

The bodybuilding community was shocked and saddened by the tragic news of the death of Sifiso Lungelo Thabete, a bodybuilder from Umlazi in  KwaZulu-Natal, at the weekend.

Sifiso, an IFBB Junior World Champion in the up to 75kg category, broke his neck in a freak accident. Sifiso’s most recent victory was at the second edition of the IFBB Muscle Mulisha Grand Prix in the Bodybuilding under 23 over 75kg division where he impressed the crowd and the judges with unbelievable muscle size and maturity beyond his age. Described by many as a young man with a bright future Sifiso’s passing is a huge loss to the sport.

The bodybuilding world is also still reeling from the shock at the news of the death of IFBB Western Province official and former Ladies Bikini competitor Michelle O’ Shea in a tragic car accident last week.

A memorial service for Michelle will be held on Thursday, 10 August at 14:00 at the St. Matthews Church Table View. We would like to express our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Sifiso and Michelle.
