The Bodybuilding community is in a state of mourning this Friday afternoon. 35-year-old Croatian bodybuilder Aleksandar Srdoc has tragically passed away.
This news is clearly a shock to the Croatian bodybuilding community, who are the ones primarily affected by his passing. Although he had not been the most recognizable name in the sport, Srdoc had competed for over a decade. He found a fair amount of success as a +90kg bodybuilder, in the Croatian circuits.
The heartbreaking news was revealed by a FaceBook post from Petar Klancir, a friend and brother in law to Aleksandar Srdoc.
“Gone to soon, rest in peace. 🙏
Last greeting to my dear brother-in-law and good friend, rest in peace. 😢”
Gone to soon, rest in peace. 🙏
Posljednji pozdrav dragom šogoru i dobrom prijatelju, počivaj u miru. 😥

At the time of writing, no official cause of death has been named. However, it is believed that Aleksandar Srdoc passed away as a result of some lingering health issues. Further information on the circumstances of his passing is currently extremely limited.
Aleksandar’s career as a professional bodybuilder was not full of a ton of glitz and glam.
