2017 Arnold Classic winner Cedric McMillan has tragically died On Apr. 12, 2022 at 44 years old.
Bodybuilding outlet FitnessVolt was the first to report the news of McMillian’s death. McMillan’s long-time sponsor, Blackskull USA, posted on their Instagram that their popular bodybuilder has passed away.
“We regret to inform you that our friend and brother @cedricmcmillan passed away today. Cedric will be greatly missed as an athlete, comrade, friend, and father. Our prayers are with all his family and friends. He “fought the good fight” and now he rests. – Marcelo Bella,” they wrote.”

McMillan’s first bodybuilding competition was in 2007 in South Carolina, where he placed first. According to Barbend.com, his first victory in the bodybuilding win came in 2011 at the Orlando Show of Champions.
His most significant and most notable win came in 2017 at the Arnold Classic in Ohio. He placed first and got his idol Arnold Schwarzenegger to pose right alongside him.
He most recently competed in the 2020 Arnold Classic Ohio, where he placed sixth.
McMillin has been absent from competition for the last two years due to health issues, and he missed the Mr. Olympia show in 2020 due to a broken collarbone and broken hand, according to fitnessvolt.com.
