Sorry to report that DON YOUNGBLOOD has passed away in his home, apparently the cause of death being a massive heart attack.
Don stunned the bodybuilding world by beating the previously "unbeatable" Vince Taylor at the 2002 Masters O. Don went on to forfill his lifelong dream of competing in that years Mr. Olympia later that same year.
Don just celebrated his 51st birthday April 7, and ran a very successful trucking business in his home state of Arkansas with his wife and children.
On behalf of all the IFBB pros, I wish to express our deepest sympathies to the Youngblood family. Don was a champion bodybuilder, but more importantly a devoted husband, father and grandfather...he will be missed.
