The Pakistani bodybuilder Humayun Khurram who was the gold medal winner at the South Asian Bodybuilding Championships 2016 has died under what some consider mysterious circumstances.
Reports say that Humayun's trachea broke while having a meal. Doctors say this is not possible and there may be more to this. Khurram's family claim he did not take steroids and was otherwise in good health. However a sports medicine specialist has said that steroid use may have been a factor. Dr Asad Abbas said that steroid use can cause several problems including heart enlargement, sudden cardiac arrest and enlargement of other organs and bodyparts.
Humayun had won Mr Pakistan and had recently won gold at the South Asian Bodybuilding Championships. His is the second death of an athlete that competed in the event. The other being the death of Hamid Ali some 2 weeks earlier of cardiac arrest. He had won Bronze at the same South Asian Championships. Strange! Rest in peace both of you.
