My sincere condolences to family, friends and loved ones. Rest in peace Neil and God bless your soul,”
According to journalist Nicholas Trigili, who specializes in bodybuilding, the athlete deliberately overdosed.
“From what my sources told me, he was under great stress – in your relationship, in your career, in your life, as a whole. Just like we all can be someday – and it ‘broke’ him” he said,
Currey began his bodybuilding career in 2017 and his main result was a gold medal at the New York Pro, in 2022, which resulted in classification for Mr. Olympia, the biggest bodybuilding tournament, his biggest dream in his career. He finished the competition in 16th place.
