    Noted.

    Keith Holmes, who held a middleweight title from 1999 to 2001, was/is vegan. He became the first vegan World Champion and today owns Vegan Hut Cafe.

    By 2014, he was well past his prime.

    i gather steroids are vegan but a bunch of past their prime athletes looking to make a buck isnt the best guide to do anything

    I said it before and I'll say it again. Rogan is a bull**** artist.

    Joe is a weird one. He is against factory farming and all types of dairy but he just can't get past the hurdle of plant protein being adequate.

    Also he seems to bizarrely think hunting his own food is more ethical

    I'll watch him if he crops up in my youtube recommended only when has a scientist on or is discussing some interesting fringe topics. But he can be plenty disingenuous when it suits him to denigrate others.

    Kendrick Farris made the switch to a vegan diet after his son was born September 2014.

    Since then Farris has packed on more muscle, moved up a weight class, and at 94kg he set an American Record total at the 2016 Olympic Trials in Salt Lake City.
    During the Olympic Team Trials, Farris set a new USA record and a personal best by lifting 800 pounds.
    In May 2016 he broke the American lifting record for clean-and-jerk with three lifts totaling 377 kg (743 lbs).

    30 years old and produced some of the best lifts of his or anyone's life after going vegan

    Lads, Clarence Kennedy and Kendrick Farris are vegan athletes to be commended in the strength sphere.

    Patrick Baboumian is a nobody in the strongman world though, and he most certainly did not win the WSM in 2011.

    Is he clean?

    He talks about roids so much, accusing other athletes, I would bet he's not.

    Clarence is definitely not

    So by your logic anti-vegans are really vegans and vegans are really meat eaters; anti-drug campaigners are actually all drug users and anti-racists are racists.

    Unless you can prove your opinion, your post is redundant.

    These are exceptional people, most can't convert beta-carotene to vitamin A, we need animal fat.

    Those strength gains by those athletes are in spite of being vegan, eg they are hormonal not from any diet

    For the record Arnie is not vegan. I watched an interview with him from a few weeks ago and he was putting raw egg into his smoothie. In fact, he was putting the whole egg in- shell and all..:eek:

    A truly amazing woman with a huge heart. A true hero.

    Genuine question what has she done that qualifies her as a hero? What selfless act to save others has she engaged in?

    All of Fiona's amazing achievements and feats of endurance were done not for monetary gain or personal ambition but to highlight veganism and it's core message of unnecessary animal suffering.
    Wthout a great deal of knowledge or professional support she stood toe to toe with the best runners in the world in the most difficult races on the planet and time and time again she proved, with the utmost selfless determination found through her compassion for exploited animals, she was their equal and often more. All on a plant-based diet.
    In the Marathon des Sables Fiona displayed more compassion when she gave up a possible 5th place or better, and commanding lead over the the rest of the field to support a fellow runner debilitated by leukaemia, striving to achieve his own goal, when no-one else would.

    The recognition of her exploits was not forthcoming as the media wanted nothing to do with her vegan standard. Rather than deterr her, she put her chin up and went harder.

    The above makes her a talented endurance runner and helping the other runner is inspiring . Displays of which I have witnessed at events I have taken part in . However none of that makes her a hero but thanks for the info. The word hero has lost all meaning tbh.

    She does cover the defining qualities; courage, strength, achievement, virtue, fearlessness, determination, positive role model..
    She speaks for herself. And she speaks very well.
    At least you are honest in your opinion.

    She is absolutely a hero to the countless beings she has rescued and rehabilitated at her own expense, both monetary and time wise. Lives that would otherwise have been ended now thrive because of her.

    She sounds like a genuine hero to me to be honest and I'm a committed carnivore and would be the first one to laugh at a vegan joke.

    Fair play to her, the world would be a better place with more people like her and probably is a better place to many because of her.
