212 Competitor Daniel Alexander Passes Away
By Domenic Mauro
The bodybuilding world is met with shock and sadness as we report the passing of a top young prospect Daniel Alexander. Gone too soon, Daniel was an up and coming 212 competitor about to make his pro debut. As an amateur Daniel finished no less than 5th with multiple wins including the 2017 Mr. USA Middleweight Champions. After a 2 year hiatus from competing Daniel was to make his pro debut at the Legion Sport Fest in the 212 division on November 9th. What makes this so tragic and frustrating is that he was young and just about to hit the bodybuilding community by storm.
Little is known as to the cause of death, but it has been confirmed by his coach Dave Kalick with a heartfelt post on Instagram. Rest In Peace Daniel. You will be greatly missed.
It is with sad heavy, anguished heart reporting the passing of my brother Daniel. This is gut wrenching and shocking beyond comprehension, there is a huge hole in my heart. Asking please for prayers thoughts for Daniel's family, close friends and loved ones.You will be forever missed and loved. Fly free Daniel and rest peacefully.
