The curtains have fallen for Ahmo Hight, fitness model and former Ms Fitness USA, at the age of 49, less than three weeks before her 50th birthday.
The sad news was confirmed by pro bodybuilder Chris Cormier, who is the father of Ahmo’s son. Her cause of death is yet to be revealed.
Ahmo died on August 29, with it being reported that she suffered a fall as she was exiting a marketplace. She’s said to have slipped and hit her head but decided against going to hospital following the fall.
A day later, the fitness influencer is said to have woken up without an appetite before going back to sleep. She died shortly after 9 am.
Speaking to Generation Iron, Chris said medical professionals believe she suffered a blood clot that was caused by the initial injury. Ahmo would have celebrated her 50th birthday on September 18.
She was well-known for her work as a fitness model and starred in an edition of Ironman magazine back in 1996. Speaking about how she was able to achieve her incredible physique, Ahmo revealed that she would train “every day after school”.
