The bodybuilding world mourns the tragic death of talented bodybuilder Justin Vicky, 33. Bali’s fitness community is in shock after learning of the fatal accident at Paradise Gym.
The accident occurred during an intense training session last Saturday. Justyn Vicky, an admired and respected athlete, was working with an impressive barbell weighing over 200 kilograms. Next to him was a colleague trying to avoid any kind of accident.
Unfortunately, it didn’t go as planned. As he struggled to hold the bar to begin his routine, Justyn Vicky could not hold the weight and his legs gave way, initiating a fatal fall.
The immense weight fell onto his shoulders and continued on to the athlete’s neck and head, causing major injuries.
Reports from Bali Discovery indicate that the barbell struck Justyn Vicky’s head so violently that the force tipped him forward, resulting in a neck fracture that compromised vital nerves linked to his heart and respiratory system.
Rushed to hospital, doctors did everything they could to save his life, but unfortunately, his injuries were so severe that he perished from them.
After the tragedy, Justyn Vicky’s close friend Kang Gede shared his sadness in an emotional statement to Bali Express:
“Vicky was a formidable, respectful and sociable person […] He shared what he knew about bodybuilding and gave advice to his friends, as well as asking them to take care of themselves without trying to exceed their limits. Only you know your own capabilities, he said. I hope Vicky rests in peace, close to God, and finds a well-deserved place there.”
