Aged only 21 and heading to Rio 2016, this Aussie athlete is becoming a shining role model for young girls everywhere. Morgan Mitchell is yet another athlete thriving on a vegan diet. She’s lost 3kg and won the Australian 400m title back in April.
Currently undefeated in 2016, Morgan Mitchell is hoping for success in both the 400m and the 4x400m relay. Since going vegan she now claims to have a lighter body and a lighter mind, now finding she excels in her athletic performances.
After watching a documentary on animal slaughter 2 years ago, Morgan Mitchell has been vegan ever since.
“I thought ‘God, I don’t want to contribute to that’. I love animals, so watching them get taken from their mothers made me really sad.”
She also makes sure she uses her platform for good.
In almost all her interviews veganism is mentioned, as well as it being in her bios on Twitter and Instagram. Retweets of PETA and pictures of gorgeous vegan food appear often, stuff we love to see!
Take a look at the comments on her pictures and you’ll see young vegan athletes thanking her for being vocal. The word inspiration appears multiple times, and this is amazing to see.
Let’s hope she can do well in Rio and show the world how amazing the vegan diet is for your body, the environment and the animals. Regardless of her success, she is once again proving to the world that veganism is for everyone.
Morgan Mitchell will be racing in the 400m on Saturday 13th August and the 4x400m relay on Saturday 20th August.
