Bodybuilder Cedric McMillan of the United States passed away at 44 due to health issues brought on by Covid-19 and a car accident. McMillan, a seasoned bodybuilder and longtime US Army and National Guard member, won the Arnold Classic in 2017.
Although the cause of death has not been disclosed, his sponsor, Black Skull USA, acknowledged his passing online. In the US, a well-known bodybuilder has passed away thrice in the past 12 months. Black Skull USA posted on Instagram, “We regret to inform you that our friend and brother @cedricmcmillan passed away today.” “Cedric will be sadly missed as a father, friend, teammate, and athlete.”
In 2009, Cedric McMillan turned pro, and since then, he has won some contests, including the 2017 Arnold Classic, named after the bodybuilder, actor, and former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger. But after 2020, he was generally unable to compete due to health issues, such as a catastrophic bicycle accident, cardiac problems, and Covid-19.
