POLL: Who's your favourite VEGAN ATHLETE?

POLL: Who's your favourite VEGAN ATHLETE?

2015-11-07 
| by Editor | Posted in Polls

Who said you need meat to get your protein for muscle-building?

Who said vegans had to be weak and feeble?

Who said steak is the whey to elite performances in sports?

 

Rapidly debunking these myths are a fine collection of vegan athletes who have consistently over-achieved in their chosen sports, from cycling, powerlifting to Ironman contests and bodybuilding.

 

Which of the below is your favourite vegan athlete? Vote now in our new poll below:

 

 

Poll closes on Friday November 20th at 6pm.

 

Make sure to share this poll around widely and ask your friends to vote by closing deadline.
