Gonzalez allegedly underwent breast enlargement surgery on January 21, just days before tragedy struck.

She was the former number five of the world championships in 2011 and was a double Pan American Champion before she retired in 2017.

In 2013, she became Pan American Champion, before repeating the achievement in 2014.

‘La Mole’, as she was known, also represented Cuba at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

While there, she defeated Nepal’s Phupu Lhamu Khatri in the first round of the women’s 63kg competition.

However, Gonzalez lost in the next round to Israel’s Yarden Gerbi, her most frequent opponent during her career.

She also won two silver medals at the continental judo Championships in 2016.

The news of Gonzalez’s death came after the Manuel Fajardo Cuban Sports University made a post on Facebook on Monday.

They wrote: ‘Cuban judo is in mourning. Maricet Espinosa González passed away. With great pain, the university community of Cuban sports receives the news of the death of the outstanding Cuban judoka.

‘At only 34 years old, ‘La mole’ (nickname by which the athlete was known)’.

The news of Gonzalez’s death comes just months after a bride-to-be passed away after getting a boob job because she wanted to show off her cleavage in a low-cut wedding dress.

Beautician Alessia Neboso, 21, from Italy, was planning to wed her longtime boyfriend Mario Lucchesi.

But just days after the breast implant surgery, Alessia started to feel unwell. The 21-year-old developed a high fever, fatigue, a cough, weakness, and gastrointestinal issues.
