But, according to his Instagram and reports from his team, he tested positive for the new coronavirus. Apparently, he was traveling to the United States from Turkey when he contracted the virus. This led to the fact that he was forced to withdraw from participation just a few days before the start of the competition.
P.S. “With a very sad and heavy heart, I want to officially announce to all my fans, rivals, and everyone who will be present at the biggest bodybuilding competition of the year, I will unfortunately not participate in 2020, Mr. Olympia.
I tested positive for Covid-19 when I was in Turkey on my way to the US. We tried everything we could, but once we tested positive for Covid-19, there’s nothing more we can do.
In the meantime, some symptoms of Covid-19 have appeared and I am now focused on making a full recovery. Even though the news is out now, it will be fair if I personally inform you of this unexpected turn of events.
My trainer @ahmd_askr and I really wanted to show you a completely different physique this year. Something you’ve never seen before. However, rest assured that while I am recovering, we will be working on our plan for 2021.
Thanks to the whole team @mrolympiallc and @ifbb_pro_league who were ready to help, but alas, it is impossible to get a positive test on covid19 and go on stage, expose others participants to infection, even if the disease is asymptomatic. Thanks to my sponsors and everyone else for their support.
See you guys in 2021! Peace to all “- said Winklaar
It’s a shame that fans won’t be able to see Rulli’s Monstrous Form on stage and figure out how high he could climb the TOP 3 or maybe even become Mr. Olympia.
Winklaar is added to a growing list of athletes who will not be competing at Olympia. Rafael Brandao also tested positive for the virus and had lingering problems that caused him to leave the competition too. Cedric Macmillan and Flex Lewis were injured, and Nathan De Asha was unable to travel to the United States due to travel restrictions.
