This is my favourite vegan website! (Always worth posting this link when in debate with vegan-bashers)

I didn't realise there was so many vegan athletes.

Nice link matey, thanks :)

My pleasure.

Just like in society as a whole it is catching on. More and more people in sport are embracing it.
Of course the beauty of this site, and others in a similar vein, is that it perfectly counters the old vegan-bashers stereotype that vegans are weak and listless. Anybody would think we were too tired to get out of bed in the morning, or keeling over in the street!
Some of the athletes featured are a true inspiration. Carl Lewis for example - and I have a soft spot for Patrik the weight-lifter. The image might not quite be in keeping with the gentle ethos of veganism! but he is certainly making a powerful point.

There is also a vegan magazine in print now called "Vegan Health and Fitness". I found it at a local whole foods coop. This is their second season on the shelves (you can order it online too) and they publish four magazines a year. Imagine my surprise with the latest issue to find out Phil Collen of Def Leppard is vegan!
