Generation Iron RIP Abbaspour

R.I.P. to the globally-renowned Iranian bodybuilder.

We’ve just learned that IFBB pro bodybuilder Baitollah Abbaspour has passed away after a hard-fought battle with Vasculitis – a disorder that involves inflammation in the blood vessels. According to reports, Abbaspour went into a coma at the Atiyeh Hospital in Iran on Tuesday morning and died shortly after.

Abbaspour was diagnosed with Vasculitis earlier in the year – the disorder causes changes in the walls of blood vessels that impede blood circulation and eventually lead to organ and tissue damage.

The first and, to date only Iranian to advance into the final round of the Masters Olympia – the loss of Abbaspour is hard felt across the entire bodybuilding community. To lose someone so young and so early, it’s impossible not to feel the pain and sorrow and everyone here at Generation Iron send our our condolences to his family and friends.
