you know, i think we are making good progress as vegans so we don't probably want to list everyone who competes - i mean, only on this board we have loads and loads of people who enter different kinds of competitions. I think we could just rely on some gut instinct and consensus on who to list, i think the person in question know it when they are on a level that they can be held as an example.
This is not to say that we all aren't examples in our own right - i certainly would like to believe i can be an example even if i am far away from competetive shape (what ever i choose to compete in anyways!). And if someone has the guts to stand up on a stage then they wouldn't be a joke anyway
Would just be a beginner and probably wouldn't need to be listed any mroe than beginners in other sports.
And when it comes to veggies, i'd just keep the exeptional ones, Pearl and Cahling are good to keep - every bodybuilder knows them (Pearl at least). I'm not too familiar with other sports, but there are TONS of veggie athletes in all fields, and vegetarianims is well represented in other sites, so we could keep things a bit more on the vegan line.
I'm still wiating for a few new names, there's a vegan boxer whose name i've misplaced. Also, we are loads of vegan yoginis, martial artists, skateboarders etc who have a good standing among their peers, just need to collect the names.
