Vegan bodybuilder Torre Washington took an impressive fifth at the Canadian Physique Alliance Ben Weider Natural Pro competition.
Torre was one of sixteen pro entrants to the Mens Physique category, and was pleased with his placing.
“We got Top 5!” he said on social media. “I am very happy with the look I brought for the last competition of the year and thank you all for the support, it’s time to work on improving.”
Torre has been vegan since 1998, a decision he made linked to his Rastafarian beliefs and an urge to avoid harming animals.
Torre was not the only vegan at the event. Jehina Malik competed for the first time since her involvement in a road accident that came close to killing her. After a long rehabilitation she has started training again and made it to the stage in the Women’s Physique.
Making the stage after the accident is a major achievement, although Jehina tells us “I’m not finished yet”.
Jehnina has been vegan since birth and enthusiastically continues this lifestyle in competition.
