The bodybuilding fraternity has been left in a state of shock with the passing of competitor Delon Harlequin
The 32 year-old Harlequin of Lot B Grant Scheme, Craig, EBD was involved in an accident on Tuesday evening on his way home after leaving the Guyana Defense Force Gym, Garden of Eden, East Bank Demerara.
The very competitive body builder was hit off of his motor cycle by a motorist, ending up in a nearby trench where he hit his head on a concrete structure thereby sustaining multiple injuries including a broken leg.
Unfortunately, the extent of the injuries was that severe that Harlequin never recovered and succumbed yesterday morning.
President of the Guyana Amateur Body Building and Fitness Federation (GABBFF) Keavon Bess in an invited comment said that the fraternity is in a state of shock following Harlequin’s demise.
“Delon was a committed athlete who always gave of his best when in the gym and on the competition stage. He was always smiling and ready to compete even when the odds were stacked against him.”
The GABBFF boss in extending condolences to Harlequin’s family and the body building fraternity said that the athlete would surely be missed noting that he was still a very young athlete who has gone too soon.
Kaieteur Sports department joins with the GABBFF in extending sincere condolences to Harlequin’s family and friends in this time of grief.
