Vegan Figure Skater Earns Olympic Gold Medal

Champion pairs figure skater Meagan Duhamel alongside partner Eric Radford—the first openly gay skater to secure an Olympic gold medal—skate a flawless performance.

World champion figure skater Meagan Duhamel and her partner Eric Radford helped the Canadian team secure an Olympic gold medal during their long-program performance this week. The pair skated to Adele’s “Hometown Glory” during the Pyeongchang Olympics in what judges called a “flawless” performance with a high level of difficulty. Duhamel has been vegan since 2008 and rescued a dog (named “Moo-tae”) from the Korean dog trade ahead of the Olympics—with plans to bring another dog home to Canada that she plans to place with an adoptive family at the completion of this year’s games. The win is also a milestone for Radford, who became the first openly gay figure skater to win a gold medal at the Olympics. Duhamel—who won a silver medal with Radford at the 2014 Sochi, Russia Olympics—announced that she would retire from the Olympics after this year’s games.
