BREAKING NEWS: Pro bodybuilder Luke Sandoe dies at 30.

We are beyond saddened to report the tragic passing of IFBB Pro Luke Sandoe.

He was only 30. Luke leaves behind two beautiful children, Louise and Leo.

The cause of death is not know. Sources close to this site have confirmed that Luke was found at his UK home.

The bodybuilding world is stunned and our hearts go out to Luke’s family, loved ones, and the entire bodybuilding world which he entertained in only ways he knew how.

We religiously watched all his Youtube shows as he was a great character and we will truly miss our private conversations with him.

Nobody made me laugh like the fuckin juggernaut. I am fuckin busted today.
Nothing, no one can replace Luke. I have had many friends over the years and even tho me and Luke weren’t best friends there was something about him that was just different.
We talked for two hours every week sometimes twice a week and I looked forward to every podcast.
I never once said “damn I gotta do this podcast”. I was always happy to talk to my friend who I knew was gonna have me busting up laughing.
The best part was he made everyone feel that way. Luke just had a way of speaking that allowed him to get away with murder and even tho he told you exactly what he thought of you, you still loved him afterwards.
He would take digs at me about my physique and the funny thing is it didn’t bother me at all, I knew he was a great bber, I knew he was destined to be at the very top and I was happy for him with every step closer he got.
Today fuckin sucks. I have almost 40 episodes to remember you by my friend. I am mad you are no longer here but I take comfort in knowing you are now at peace.

Once I heard the news today of Luke Sandoe’s passing, I truly couldn’t believe it. As I tried to get answers, the texts, DMs began to flood in and it was then confirmed that one of our Brother’s In Iron passed away. What has hurt so much is that although Luke and I weren’t very close, we did share some cool moments while I was in the UK last July. I can still remember him asking me if i would take a look at his physique as he was preparing for a couple shows prior to the Olympia. During those moments, I realized very quickly just how genuine Luke was and how passionately present he stood there while giving him advice. Rarely am I asked to give an honest critique of a fellow Pro’s physique, let alone from someone who has competed at the Olympia, so feeling this vibe of him being so humble, hard working and intelligent was something special to me. I am saddened at this news along with many fans around the world, but one thing I would like for us to do is continue to uplift his family through positive vibes and prayer as his kids, Louise and Leo lost their SuperHeroDad not to mention his parents, siblings and other loved ones. Luke’s ability and potential was something I wish I could have seen come into fruition because honestly, that was exactly why I even chatted with him in the first place. Damn, this is yet another tough loss, but I will continue to remember you Luke as the Man whom I shared some great times with and will continue to pray for your family. Rest in POWER LUKE!!!!!
