Paralympic Basketball Player Follows Vegan Diet

Australian Women’s wheelchair basketball player Sarah Stewart promotes her vegan diet as the London 2012 games commence.

Not only is Sarah Stewart a two-time Paralympian, winning silver and bronze medals for Australia’s women’s wheelchair basketball team in Athens and Beijing respectively, but the driven athlete is also a PhD candidate in Philosophy from Sydney University and a dedicated vegan. Citing health, ethical, and environmental reasons for her dietary choices, Stewart actively promotes her vegan choices to her online followers, recently tweeting a photo of her first vegan meal at the athlete’s village comprised of tofu, curries, and fruit. Stewart, who was injured in an accident at age 16 resulting in spinal dystrophy, will again be representing Austrailia at the London 2012 games.
