French Pro-athlete Baek Lionel (Lionel Beyeke) was added to the list of participants in the upcoming festival Arnold Classic USA, 2019 in Columbus at the last moment. However, a week before the start, the athlete posted a message on the page in Instagram that he was forced to withdraw from this competition. The reason for this Lionel calls the problems with the passport, which he can’t get in the United States of America:
Friends, with the emotional pain I inform you that I will not be able to participate in the Arnold Classic in Columbus this year because of problems with the passport. I have not received my new passport in time to go to the Arnold classic in March. I’ll keep you updated on my schedule of the competition. Thank you for your support.
Thus, Baek became the first of the thirteen participants of the open category of bodybuilding, which will not appear on stage in Ohio. Follow our updates about the forthcoming Grand sports festival Arnold classic USA 2019.
