In a new ad for PETA Europe, Britain’s top-notch squash player James Willstrop is out to unite vegetable fans and sports fans around the world.
Once he kicked animal flesh out of his diet, James noticed a surge in his energy levels and his speed. He’s used these newfound super-vegetarian powers to squash not only obesity but also the competition at several major world tournaments.
Willstrop joins other athletes—including Prince Fielder, Georges Laraque, NBA stars Raja Bell and John Salley, MMA fighters Mac Danzig and Dale Hart, and Olympic great Carl Lewis—who have risen to the top of their games on a vegetarian diet. Taking PETA’s “Pledge to Be Veg” can help you do the same.
