Vegan Olympian Morgan Mitchell is determined as well as strong. She started her vegan lifestyle back in 2014. It wasn’t her choice to go vegan. But when her partner introduced the idea of going vegan she embraced the idea and never looked back. Since then she has been breaking stereotypes about how plant based diets can’t provide proteins.
Morgan became an olympian when she was just 21-years-old in 2016, she ran the 400m back then. And this was two years after she followed the vegan lifestyle, and she smashed it. Now, she is trying her hand at the 800m races. And that is worth the praise. She is standing against the very idea that meat provides protein, and she follows a plant based diet that supplies her with her share of protein.
Her decision to take part in 800m surprised coaches, fellow athletes, and spectators. But she has set the goal of competing in the 800m at the 2020 Summer Olympics, which will be in Tokyo. She didn’t much pay attention to the IAAF World Athletics Championships, which was just held in Doha, Qatar. But she performed remarkably well in Müller Games in London. Mitchell ran the 800m in 2:00.06, thus reaching the qualifying standard for the World Championships. And she represented Australia in the games. But sadly she made to the semi-finals but not the finals.
When asked about it Mitchell wasn’t sad. But she said – “I exceeded my expectations this year, Although it wasn’t the result I was hoping for, I think I’ve set myself up nicely for next year.”
In an Instagram post she wrote how proud she was of herself for accomplishing so much in a limited amount of time. Like Mitchell, many sports people are changing their diets to plant-based. Olympic medalist Rebecca Soni swapped out dairy for plant-based milk. She mentioned how it helped her move faster and made her feel better.
