Vegan Crowned Toughest Woman

Vegan athlete Juliana Sproles has been crowned the world's "toughest" woman after winning a competition.

After completing the “World’s Toughest Mudder” competition—a muddy, 24-hour obstacle course performed in below-freezing temperatures—vegan athlete Juliana Sproles has been named the “toughest woman on the planet.” Tough Mudder competitions are designed by the British Special Forces to take entrants through 20 to 30 challenging obstacles on a 10 to 12 mile course, testing strength, stamina, resourcefulness, and camaraderie. The final end-of-year competition, which took place on December 17 and 18, drew the top five percent of participants from previous events, with the resulting winners taking home the title of the toughest man and woman on the planet. Forty-two year-old Sproles, from Ojai, CA, is sponsored by vegan-foods company Boku Superfoods.
