Brandon Curry In Brutal Gym Accident
Olympia Coverage Sponsored By Redcon1
Just a few days out, Mr. Olympia contender Brandon Curry got into an accident that could have, not only taken him out of the Olympia, but ended his career.
The close call involved Brandon literally tearing the machine he was for triceps extensions out of the ground! The weight of the machine pushed Brandon forward into another machine which broke the fall. Luck was on his side as he walked away with only a scrape on his finger and a bump on his melon.
Bodybuilding fans WILL see Brandon compete at the Olympia, but he reminds us not tomorrow is never promised and to always be grateful.
See below for the full video and Brandon’s reflection on the incident:
Yes, just yesterday during my final exercise, I pull a machine over on top of myself. Once the stack got up so high it made the machine too heavy, as I was performing overhead triceps extensions. Thank God I walked away uninjured just a bump and scrap. Life is uncertain. Things can be going great one second and not so great the other. God is always in control of it all and what can been seen as bad is often for our good. We can’t allow ourselves to get so focus on life we forget about the life giver. Should out to @kuwaitbodybuilding for getting this on film. #noweapon #stayhumble
