Bodybuilding poster Arimides, now 24, says she’s back on the right track after a two-year hiatus.
Arimides competed in the 2012 London Olympics and had been battling with the flu for the last year.
She returned to competition in January 2015, the same month she was diagnosed with the virus.
After two years of fighting, she was cleared for competition in March, and then competed in Beijing, where she won gold.
Her return was met with enthusiasm on social media, as she took to Twitter to thank the fans who came to her aid.
She said the fans were the best in the world and that they’ve helped her out.
The bodybuilder was diagnosed after she was hit by a car in June.
Her doctors advised her to stop taking her meds, but she refused, and continued to train.
After taking two months off to get back on track, she resumed her bodybuilding career and won two more titles in January.
Her latest title came in September.
After missing the Olympics for the past two years, Arimades returned to the scene with the world’s attention last month.
Arisima was scheduled to appear on ESPN2’s Bodybuilding & Fitness Show, but her body collapsed on live television.
She died at the age of 27.
She was a favorite of the show’s viewers, who regularly asked questions and asked her to share her stories.
Arimates was also featured in a viral YouTube video with her trainer, Joe Giannocchi, where they discussed her fight against the flu.
Ariamides also competed in a series of bikini contests in 2017, in which she was asked to reveal her secrets.
In an interview with the New York Post in February, Ariamides said she felt “a lot of energy” after her comeback.
