Two-time Olympian, Kendrick Farris, attended both London and Beijing and will again be representing the USA in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
A third Olympics? That’s a pretty impressive stat itself. What’s better is that Farris is vegan.
Farris recently set the USA 94kg weightlifting record, has placed top-10 in both his previous Olympic Games AND was the Pan-American champion in 2010.
Being the only weightlifter from the USA, Kendrick Farris will be flying the flag high for the vegan message, showing that anything is possible. He’s one of many athletes that prove we can get everything in abundance from plant based dinner plates.
Let’s hope we see more athletes adopting veganism to better their health, reduce their environmental footprint and save the lives of millions of animals.
You can watch Kendrick Farris on Saturday the 13th August as he competes in the men’s 94kg weightlifting category.
