Mr Olympia Shawn Reportedly dies at 46 following heart attack
Mr Olympia Shawn Reportedly dies at 46 following heart attack. A Bodybuilding star, Olympia Shawn has sadly passed away after reportedly suffering a heart attack.
He was just 46 years of age.
Having won the Mr Olympia competition back in 2018, Rhoden was widely regarded as one of the best bodybuilders on the planet who had a huge following with almost 2 million followers on Instagram alone.
On his path to a historic victory in 2018, Rhoden successfully fended off seven-time Mr Olympia and bodybuilding royalty Phil Heath.
Rhoden’s trainer Chris Aceto has now confirmed to close friends that the bodybuilder has tragically died. Since winning the biggest prize the sport has on offer, Rhoden has found himself in the spotlight away from the bright lights of the bodybuilding stage.
In 2019, he was accused of sexually assaulting a fellow female bodybuilder and was subsequently charged and banned from competing in the Mr Olympia competition.
Rhoden was never convicted and his suspension was ultimately reconsidered. Just a few days prior to his death, he wrote a cryptic and eerie caption on an Instagram post.
“Brick by brick and patience it will take. See you on the other side,” Rhoden said.
Despite the controversy surrounding him, the American is seen as an iconic figure in the sport by bodybuilding fans with thousands flooding to social media to pay their respects to him.
