Bodybuilder, 34, Dies in Tragic Accident

Brazilian bodybuilder André Cavalcanti, 34, tragically lost his life in a motorcycle accident last week. The International Fitness and Bodybuilding Federation’s Parana, Brazil chapter confirmed the news of his untimely demise through a social media post. Further details about the fatal incident were later disclosed by TMZ.

The accident occurred in the northern region of Parana on July 5. Cavalcanti was riding his motorcycle when he was hit head-on by a car driven by a 17-year-old, who was reportedly driving his parents’ car without their consent. The collision took place on BR-369, a Brazilian highway stretching over 766 miles, between the towns of Ibipora and Jataizinho.

Following the crash, the teenage driver was rushed to the hospital, while Cavalcanti was ejected from his motorcycle and pronounced dead at the scene. Two other minors, aged 15 and 17, were also present in the car at the time of the accident.

Local authorities are contemplating charging the driver as an adult and with a crime akin to homicide. The International Fitness and Bodybuilding Federation’s Parana chapter expressed their sorrow over Cavalcanti’s death in a heartfelt Instagram post, translated from Portuguese.

The post read, “It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our Pro Support athlete, André Cavalcanti, in a motorcycle accident this morning. His was a young life, brimming with plans. We pray for God to provide solace to his family in the face of this tragedy.”

The post further praised Cavalcanti as a remarkable athlete, friend, and partner, and remembered him as an honest and dedicated individual. His loss was described as a significant one for the earth, while heaven was said to have gained a gift.

This tragic incident follows the death of another bodybuilder, Marco Cesar Aguiar Luis, better known as “Monster,” who passed away in Germany at the age of 46 in April. In September, Neil Currey, another bodybuilder, died at 34 due to a lethal mix of drugs, including steroids.
