UPDATE (9:50am 8/27/21): The original version of this article contained a small segment recapping the recent string of deaths in competitive bodybuilding as well as a comment from Mr. Olympia promoter Jake Wood on his concerns over athlete health in the sport. We have spoken with and received comments from Megan Elizabeth’s family and friends on their concern this is misleading in connecting her passing to these other deaths. This was not our intention and so we have removed the content to more accurately reflect the reality of this situation.
