Kendrick Farris, team USA’s only 2016 Olympic Weightlifting competitor is vegan. Farris credits his vegan diet with making him stronger, leaner, and more focused. When asked what changes he noticed after making the switch to a vegan diet he said: "Now, my body recovers a lot faster. I feel lighter. My mind is a lot more clear. I feel I can focus a lot better—not that I wasn’t a focused individual before, but now I feel like I’m totally locked in".
