2020 Olympia News - Cedric McMillan Out
It is very unfortunate to report that Cedric McMillan will likely be out of the 2020 Mr. Olympia. As we get closer to the Olympia, Cedric’s fans were increasingly excited to see him step on stage. While McMillan may not have been considered as a contender to win the Mr. Olympia title, he is recognized as one of the most gifted athletes in the sport. After receiving pictures from Cedric himself, Fouad Abiad shared the news to his YouTube channel. He did say he would let McMillan explain the details further when he appears on Fouad’s podcast in the coming days.
“So, Mr. Cedric McMillan, who is not a fan of social media, sent me some photos and asked me to share the unfortunate bad news about his Olympia prep,” Fouad said. “I don’t think he’s going to be able to do the Olympia because he has a break in his collarbone and a break in his hand. I don’t know exactly how he did it, and I want him to share that with you. I think the actual injury is a dislocated hand. I’m not sure if there’s a break in it, but there’s a break in the collarbone.”
The video also shows images from Cedric’s visit to the hospital, including x-rays of his hand, the casting process, as well as his meeting with the doctor to explain what had happened. While we currently do not have all of the details at this time that led to his injury or the severity, we do hope that McMillan is able to make a quick recovery and we will see him back on stage in the near future.
