23-Year-Old South African Bodybuilder Dies After Backflip


How horrific! 23-year-old Sifiso Lungelo Thabethe met his untimely death during a bodybuilding event in his hometown, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa on Friday (August, 11 ).  Wearing black speedos and black socks, the bodybuilding champion is captured in a video flexing his muscles and cheering the crowd. He later attempts a backflip which ends tragically.


The organization’s national executive president  Wayne Price apparently revealed that…”We suspect, because he was wearing socks this time, that he slipped or didn’t get enough momentum and landed horribly on his head”

Sifiso is reported to have died on arrival at the hospital. The bodybuilding champ was apparently known for his signature backflips.

May his soul rest in peace.
