In this era where, in my opinion, power is necessary so I have a question about alimentary habits for most important sport players.

How many and who famous international sport (tennis/football/volleyball/basketball/winter sports/athletics) player is declared as vegan?

Yes! Numerous professional sports players have declared as vegan. There's even a website devoted to their declarations.


There aren't very many athletes featured there, but there are some other lists of vegan or near vegan professional sports participants that are available with some searching on the web. For instance, the recently retired future NFL hall of famer Tony Gonzalez is vegetarian and nearly vegan.
