So sad! We will do some sort of tribute guys. If anyone deserves it Franco does.

RIP Franco Columbu!

"Franco died Friday, with reports out of Italy saying the legendary bodybuilder lost his life in an incident at sea in his native Sardinia."

Franco died in an accident.

"Franco Columbu, 78, of Ollolai, a former mister universe, a world-famous bodybuilder, died from the consequences of an accident at sea in the late morning in San Teodoro. Franco Columbu was transported to the hospital of Nuoro, he died at the San Francesco in the early afternoon. Columbu was known not only for his incredible feats of strength but also as a humble, compassionate, and brilliantly funny human being. A two-time Olympia champion, Columbu is perhaps best remembered for his longtime friendship with Arnold Schwarzenegger. The two of them emigrated to America together in 1969 and started out as bricklayers before breaking into the world of competitive bodybuilding."

Such a sad loss not only for Arnold, as he was his best friend, but for the bodybuilding in general.

Another legend is gone. Rest in peace Franco.

Absolutely bro. At least he went out on the water. He loved the ocean. I'm not exactly sure how he died but I'm hoping he died doing what he loved.

Thanks for posting brother. I miss seeing you here.

I've heard somewhere in a video that he died of a heart attack while swimming.

Not official though.
