Vegan Bodybuilder Robert Cheeke makes one of year's top stories in Portland, OR Newspaper Cover Story

Vegan Bodybuilder Robert Cheeke, Founder of Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness – www.veganbodybuilding.com (2002) has been voted "Best of 2008" along with Barack Obama and others featured on the cover of Portland, Oregon's Willamette Week, the state's most popular alternative newspaper in their issue featuring the top stories of year voted by the readers.  The story can be found on www.wweek.com under the December 31, 2008 cover story; Boobs, Briefs and Barack.  2008's 15 Most-read Stories on www.wweek.com.

Robert was featured on the cover of the July 16, 2008 issue of the Willamette Week with the Cover Story, a 2500-word, multiple page, multiple photo feature story that was a very positive and uplifting piece about his Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness lifestyle.

The newspaper was on approximately one thousand newsstands in the greater Portland area for an entire week in July and prompted a call from the New York Times, who caught word of the story.  The Portland-based vegan bodybuilder returned home from a 5-month cross-country motivational speaking tour that took him from California to Hawaii to Florida and many places in between in major cities across America, to find himself once again on the cover of the Willamette Week on New Year's Eve.

The second Willamette Week cover story in six months was a fitting closure to a year that saw Robert selected as one of the 15 most influential vegan athletes in America by VegNews Magazine, and saw him become one of the most popular names in the entire vegan industry, featured in dozens of media publications in 2008.
