Will a vegan diet make someone a better athlete?

Traditional narratives around meat and athletic performance are being challenged as a surge of vegan and plant-based athletes start to highlight their success.

Amongst the ever-growing list, some notable examples of vegan and vegetarians have made their mark, such as: Former UK boxer David Haye, Carl Lewis, champion of nine Olympic gold medals in athletics, Bode Miller, Olympic medalist in alpine skiing and Martina Navratilova, holder of the most titles in the history of tennis.

Key sportspeople are celebrating the vegan lifestyle and its positive effects on their performance.
