150+ Vegan Athletes (Sortable by Sport)
Last updated: March 22, 2018
My biggest "excuse" for not going vegan sooner was that I didn't think I could play semi-professional soccer while on a vegan diet.
It's not true, and the clearest proof is that there are tons of elite professional athletes performing well on vegan diets.
I've collected over 150 high level athletes for this page. No matter which sport you play, there's likely at least 1 professional competing with a vegan diet, from rowing to bodybuilding.
Important caveat: There may be a few athletes on this page who do not always follow a 100% vegan diet, it's often hard to tell based on sources that I found.
More and more athletes are trying a vegan diet over time, and I'll do my best to keep this page updated.
