Jusup Wilkosz is an outstanding person who is loved by millions of bodybuilding fans. The Golden Era idol proved that having a short career doesn’t mean being unsuccessful. His bright life full of great victories and achievements is worth writing books to inspire younger generations of sportsmen.
Being a man of insane physical power, Jusup started his way in sport as a weightlifter. However, soon he was attracted to bodybuilding and discovered he can be good at that. Jusup managed to develop an impressive physique and won the Mr. Universe title almost at the very beginning of his bodybuilding career.
The sensational muscled beast decided to go even further, taking part in the Olympia contest where he demonstrated great results, getting the third place in 1984. It’s impossible to speak about legends of the Golden Era, without remembering Jusup Wilkosz. The name of this incredible and talented sportsman stands near to the names of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Franco Columbu, Frank Zane, and Sergio Oliva.
Unfortunately, Jusup was too passionate about training, often forgetting about his safety. A number of serious traumas led to the early end of his amazing professional career. The German IFBB Pro competitor left the stage at the age when many of his colleagues started their way to success. Years after, Jusup stayed an inspiration and a role model for many bodybuilders.
According to the message shared by Jusup’s family, the legendary bodybuilder passed away a few days before. Thousands of people all over the world are now sad, remembering the favorite sportsman and great man.
