Cedric McMillan at Recent Guest Posing, Talks Near Death Covid Experience

Cedric McMillan talks about his near death experience with Covid.

It appears that Phil Heath isn’t the only top bodybuilder to recently battle Covid. Cedric McMillan recently revealed that he himself battled the sickness. In fact McMillan stated that the virus nearly took his life this past July.

It’s been quite some time since Cedric McMillan has been on a competitive stage. Save for his showing at the first night of the Legion Sports Fest, McMillan has been missing in action. He made his long awaited return to the stage at a recent guest posing event. He looked strong and impressive per usual, but not quite to his optimal form. The reason for that was pretty alarming. It appears that the 2017 Arnold Classic champion was waging a secret battle with virus wreaking havoc across the globe.

At the guest posing event Cedric McMillan would go on to explain that he suffered a terrible bout with the virus. As a result the bodybuilder also revealed that he had lost 30 Lbs of body weight. This gels with the info McMillan revealed on his social media not long after his guest posing appearance.

Looking to continue his resurgence back to his full potential, Cedric McMillan did another guest posing. McMillan stepped on stage at the Expo Super Show in Brazil. His recent appearance showed the bodybuilder slowly returning to form, showcasing a pretty impressive physique in the process.

Here is some of what Cedric McMillan had to say of his battle with the sickness.

“Back in July, I was almost dead…My wife was with me but I was outta here, seriously. But I didn’t see no white light. I don’t know if I was that close but looking at me from the outside, I was that close.”

It really sounds like Cedric McMillan had a brush with death. It’s great news to not only hear but see that he’s made a full recovery and is back to doing what he loves.
