It is with great sorrow that we mourn the passing of Cristhian Annes, an esteemed Brazilian bodybuilder, who departed from us this Monday, only two months after his inclusion on the kidney transplant list. Numerous sources have confirmed this heartbreaking news.
At the youthful age of 34, Annes graced the world with his remarkable presence and physique. Born with one kidney, fate dealt him a challenging hand. In 2022, he received the sobering revelation that his lone kidney was failing him. As complications ensued, he found himself on the transplant list.
On the somber day of January 20th, Annes was admitted to the hospital, where he fought against the odds. However, despite the unwavering efforts of medical professionals and the outpouring of love and support from his family and friends, he succumbed to his battle two weeks later.
Bodybuilder Cristhian Annes Dies at 34 Waiting for Kidney Transplant
Annes’ girlfriend, Wanna Teixeira expressed her sadness and condolences.
“He stayed quiet when he got the results because everything was off and he didn’t want to tell anyone. He refused to undergo treatment. Now finally, he had hope but there wasn’t enough time.”
Before his tragic passing, Annes found out another 68 potential recipients were waiting for a kidney on the transplant list.
Cristhian Annes rose to prominence within the community of Ponta Grossa, gaining recognition for his dedication to physical fitness. His journey in the industry ranged from competitive bodybuilding to mentoring and coaching others in their pursuit of wellness. Annes actively participated in various bodybuilding contests across Brazil, all while guiding numerous individuals toward achieving their fitness aspirations. He was also a successful fitness model.
This has been far from the first sudden passing to shock the bodybuilding community. Recently, a fitness coach was found dead following a heated argument with her husband. Police later discovered her body outside of her parents’ home lying on the sidewalk.
If that wasn’t enough, last year saw several high-profile influencers lose their lives, including 30-year-old Jo Lindner, who was a beloved member of the community who regularly collaborated with stars such as Larry Wheels, where they would test each other with an array of different workouts and training sessions.
While details about Cristhian Annes’ untimely passing are limited, it’s evident he had a profound impact on those around him. Our staff at Fitness Volt extend our deepest sympathies to the friends and family of Christhian Annes while they navigate this difficult time.
