These Vegan Bodybuilders Just Broke Fitness Records Like It's Their Job

Last weekend was the Naturally Fit Games in Austin, Texas — bringing together world class athletes to compete in live tests of fitness of various categories and levels. PlantBuilt (a non-profit bodybuilding group that supports vegan athletes and raises money for farmed animal sanctuaries) showed up in all their plant-powered glory, demonstrating unmatched strength and vigor. Of the 1,000 competitors who attended, the PlantBuilt team brought 39 members who ended up collectively winning 32 medals (22 being first place medals!) in categories including powerlifting, CrossFit, bodybuilding, Olympic weightlifting, and kettlebell. "...we will continue to educate and dispel the myths that you need to eat meat to build muscle and strength," said PlantBuilt co-founder, Giacomo Marchese in an interview with VegNews.
