Grant Sheldon is a 24-year-old professional triathlete from Hamilton, Scotland. Taking up the sport around 10 years ago, he has since podiumed at European and World Cups, as well as ranking 4thin Edmonton at the World Triathlon Series; the top level of triathlon racing.
Towards the end of 2015, Grant decided to make a change which he hoped would positively affect his performances in these races: he became vegan.
The process of becoming fully vegan took him around one year. “I started reading to find out if food could enhance athletic performance and gradually discovered that ditching animal products might work,” he said. “I started off with cow’s milk- something I used to drink a lot of.”
