Great Vegan Athletes – Meat Industry lies

Many of the most successful sportspeople worldwide are now vegan. While they may differ in that they have decided to go vegan to avoid animal cruelty, for their health, to reduce environmental impact, or other reasons, they have one large similarity. They have proved that excellence and veganism often go together.

Australian Meat industry has been spreading lies for years to eat red meat so you can grow up big and strong, but the opposite is true… just ask a silver back gorilla, or an elephant.


Myths still persist that state that it is not possible to be vegan and be successful in sport. These myths do not have a foundation in science, and athletes build muscle, endurance and ability on plant sources and many go on to achieve great things. The performance of these athletes is proof that veganism can and does enable excellence.
