Arnold Schwarzenegger Will Not Attend Arnold Classic UK After Suffering Leg Injury

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been seen with a mysterious leg brace in recent updates.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been getting his events underway in recent weeks. On Sept. 25, the Arnold Classic 2021 took place in Columbus, OH. It saw Nick Walker take home the prize in Men’s Open and Arnold himself was there to provide commentary on the broadcast and hand out awards. That will not be the case this weekend.

The Arnold Classic UK 2021 will take place this weekend in Birmingham, England. Competitors like Nathan De Asha and Tim Budesheim are scheduled to appear but there will be a glaring emptiness. Schwarzenegger announced that he will not travel to the event this weekend.

“Arnold UK Announcement

I’m sad to announce I won’t be able to see the @arnoldsportsuk in person this year. The team has done such a fantastic job, and I’ll be 100% with you guys virtually, doing my q and a and using technology to be at the event. I can’t wait to see you in person next year.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger will not be there in person but vows to be available virtually throughout the entire event. The reason the best bodybuilder of all-time will not be at the event was not released but he was seen in a leg brace in his Instagram post. The injury has not been disclosed at this time.

During the broadcast in Columbus, Schwarzenegger seemed healthy and in good shape. This injury might have happened in the time between the two events. While he will not travel to England, Schwarzenegger could try to make it to the biggest event in bodybuilding next weekend in Orlando.

There are many in the comments’ section of his post that are prompting Schwarzenegger to get well soon. It will be interesting to see if more details are released on the specific injury or when it was suffered.

Schwarzenegger will be absent this weekend but Sylvester Stallone, Ronnie Coleman, and Dolph Lungrend are expected to make an appearance. Coleman recent received the Arnold Classic Lifetime Achievement Award last weekend.

This is Arnold Classic UK is another event brought together by Arnold Schwarzenegger while joined by Eddie Hall and Stephen Olexy. There are a total of five divisions that will be competing and they are Men’s Open, Classic Physique, Men’s Physique, Bikini, and Fitness. Winners will gain qualification to the 2022 Olympia.

While Schwarzenegger will not physically be at the event, he will certainly be present in some aspect. This event remains one to watch and will be an exciting weekend in England.
