You are doing an awesome job of dispelling the myth that vegans can't be strong! Love it, keep up the good work

Tarzan - not sure how "obvious" it is to you that he's juiced, I'd be a bit cautious about making too many accusations without evidence. He's pretty big and definitely strong, but nowhere that's out of the capabilities of natural athletes by any stretch of the imagination. Shit, I once watched a naturally bull-strong 18 year old kid enter a deadlift comp with zero preparation (and his claims he deadlifted only a few times ever, trained at the same gym and didn't see him do anything but chest, arm and back work for 2 years straight) and pull 545 lbs. easily enough at about 220 lbs. bodyweight. Sometimes, there are natural freaks among us that truly are stronger than we will be, and it's not because they're all secretly juiced up.

Also not sure about the "not even vegan" note, didn't come across anything that showed he was eating/supplementing with anything non-vegan (the company he's sponsored by does make plenty of non-vegan stuff as can clearly be seen, but it wouldn't make him non-vegan to just be using their creatine or other such things!) Of course, if I missed something, feel free to point it out, but I didn't take away the same things you did from viewing his info.

G'day fellow vegans! In August this year I should be a world record holder for 18-19, 125kg Mens in Powerlifting.

VEGAN POWER!

Exactly. I've seen vegans sponsored by companies that aren't always 100% vegan, why some seem to believe that such a connection means the sponsored athlete can't be vegan by default is something I don't understand. If you're not using the non-vegan items they make, it doesn't mean a thing in relation to you being vegan yourself.

Glad to see a company that, while not 100% vegan themselves, is happy to sponsor vegan athletes. In the USA, most supplement companies would be far less likely to sponsor athletes who weren't going to push the products they WANT them to push!
