Bodybuilding is a sport of individuals and not teams – fans become very attached to each bodybuilder like a celebrity personality. The more we see them compete and put themselves out there, the more we connect with them as people. The death of any person is a very sad thing indeed only to be made all the sadder when they are a public figure.
