Bodybuilding is, like many performance arts, a lot of preparation for a tiny little bit of time in the spotlight. All kinds of horrible things go on behind the curtain to get musclemen ready for their judgment. So the absolute worst thing that can happen to a pro is for something to interrupt that brief shining moment. For Australian competitor Gary Himing, he demonstrated the risks in bodybuilding in the most extreme way: by dying on stage. Himing was competing in the Masters division at the IFBB event in Victoria when he collapsed from a heart attack after his set. Amazingly enough, the show continued after his body was removed from the stage.
