Nathan De Asha admits in court to supplying steroids by post.
It seems there is a curse on the athletes scheduled to compete at the 2019 Mr. Olympia.
After the suspension of 2018 Mr. Olympia Shawn Rhoden due to rape charges. Previously we had the news that Big Ramy is skipping the show due to injury and 7X Mr. Olympia Phil Heath looks like he will be skipping this years Olympia.
As well earlier this week, rumors are spreading that even Josh Lenartowicz looks as he will be missing the 2019 Mr. Olympia as well. Josh insists that he will be at the Olympia, but Muscular Development’s Giles Thomas and AJ Kelly say they are 100% sure he will be missing this years Olympia.
What else can happen? Another top athlete admitting in court that he was supplying steroids.
Yes, it is true, Nathan De Asha has admitted to supplying steroids in 2017 during a court case this week.
Liverpool-based Nathan De Asha, who performs with the nickname The Prophecy, sent a package of the class C drug through the post to a gym.
The steroids were found when police raided the Pain and Gain gym in Barnstaple in Devon in August 2017 while investigating an unrelated drugs case.
A sender’s address on the package led officers to alert colleagues in Liverpool, where De Asha runs his own body building studio.
Nathan is qualified to compete for the Mr Olympia title in Las Vegas in September.
De Asha is rated in the top 15 professional body builders in the world and won the Lou Ferrigno Hulk competition in 2016.
He also went on to win the California and New York Pro competitions last year.
De Asha, was once convicted and jailed after going on Facebook and urging his followers to riot during the 2011 disturbances, encouraging people to loot and take over Liverpool One shopping centre.
The bodybuilder is a director of the Prophecy Performance centre, a gym in the Viscount Centre in Liverpool, with registered offices in the city’s famous Penny Lane.
De Asha, of Grange Lane, Gateacre, Liverpool appeared at Exeter Crown Court by video link from Liverpool Crown Court.
He pleaded guilty to a single count of being concerned in the supply of Class C steroids between March 1 and August 24, 2017.
Judge David Evans adjourned his sentence until after the trial of the owners of the Pain and Gain gym, which is taking place this week.
He released Deasha on bail and ordered a probation pre-sentence report.
He said: “I need to let Mr De Asha know that all options, including custody, will remain open.”
After all this news we have to now see the response from AMI’s David Pecker, as he suspended Shawn Rhoden before he was proven guilty, while Nathan admitted to his guilt.
