There has been a significant boom in the accessibility and inclusivity of veganism over the last decade. We are in the midst of a culture shift. The same people who once asked, but where do you get your protein from, are now filling their shopping carts with brands like Gardien, Beyond Meat, and Impossible. Athletes all over the globe are dispelling myths that paint vegans as anemic weaklings suffering from malnutrition. Below are just ten of the world’s vegan athletes who are crushing it in their field.

With each gold medal placed on a vegan athlete’s shoulders, more and more people are seeing the truth about plant-based diets.  By avoiding animal products, people can take control of many of the problems facing the world today.  A vegan diet saves the lives of countless animals, protects the environment, and promotes overall health.  This simple dietary and lifestyle change can lower your chances of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. It can also drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as water and land usage.  A 2016 study released by the University of Oxford found that the planet’s food-related emissions would drop by 70 percent if the world were to go vegan.

Whether it is the 150 billion animals that are killed each year in ‘animal agriculture’, or your own personal health that has started you on your plant-based mission, we can all agree that Mother Nature will benefit from this change. Look to these athletic legends for inspiration on your path towards veganism.  Who knows, maybe you will be the next vegan athlete to win a gold medal at the Olympics!
