Bodybuilder Dies While Trying To Backflip!

Sifiso Lungelo Thabete breaks neck while failing to perform a backflip. One never knows when their time on earth is over, as for one body builder from Umlazi in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa found out today. Sifiso Lungelo Thabete was attempting to entertain the crowd at a body building event when he decided to do a backflip but ended up landing on his head. The attempt was filmed and put online where viewers mostly mocked him for the failed attempt. Unfortunately, it turned out that Thabete had seriously injured himself and had broken his neck. It all started when Thabete began waving his arms and running around the open floor to gain people's attention. He stood in the middle of the floor as onlookers filmed and he attempted to flip backwards, but unfortunately he did not fully rotate. Thabete came down hard on his head putting an enormous amount of force on his neck, breaking it in the fall. At first the video shows him laying motionless after the fall as others rush in to help him. Eventually he rolls onto his back as people come to his aid. Sifiso, an IFBB Junior World Champion in the up to 75kg category, his most recent victory was at the second edition of the IFBB Muscle Mulisha Grand Prix in the Bodybuilding under 23 over 75kg division where he impressed the crowd and the judges with unbelievable muscle size and maturity beyond his age. Described by many as a young man with a bright future Sifiso's passing is a huge loss to the sport.
