The Instagram account Darkness Nation reported on the bodybuilder’s passing.

“Today it was no coincidence that the sky was cloudy … we received the sad news that our brother in irons, Victor Luna, had passed away.⠀

Luna was an important name in the national bodybuilding scene, mainly in Rio de Janeiro. His first championship was in 2006, in the rookie category, where he won the category at just 22 years old.

With about 1.83m in height, he was considered for one time one of the heaviest bodybuilders in Brazil, reaching 140kg in his off season and 113kg in pre contest. His training was like we like to talk, in the best “old school” style, with a lot of load and brutality!”
