Arnold Schwarzenegger is the inspiration for the bodybuilding tournament Arnold Classic. The close friend of Arnold, and the co-founder of the event Jim Lorimer, just passed away.
Arnold Schwarzenegger paid homage to his friend by sharing an emotional dedication on social media.
His touching message made everyone cry and a lot of famous people reacted to it.
Jim Lorimer served as an FBI agent, mayor, and national track coach. He had a goal to make bodybuilding more well-known. They both established Arnold Classic in the late 80′.
The project developed into the second-most prominent bodybuilding organization in the world. Arnold turned to Instagram with these words,
‘I am devastated that I won’t be able to meet him again. I won’t be able to hear his wisdom, sit with him again, analyze bodybuilders or simply just laugh.’
Both of them are known as pioneers of bodybuilding.
We send our condolences to the family and friends.
