Vegan Neil pots another tournament win

Snooker’s vegan potter Neil Robertson has shown incredible form to take a victory in the Tour Championship.  Neil was seen playing with impressive  energy and concentration, racking up wins including a 10-3 demolition of three time World Champion Mark Selby. 

Facing current World Champion Ronnie O Sullivan in the final, Neil won six frames in a row to win 10-4. 

“I’ve never seen anyone play as well as that. His cue action is ridiculous.” O’Sullivan said. “I can’t compete with that. I just have to sit back and enjoy that amazing play.”

Neil is now turning his attention to the World Championships, where he currently considered third favourite.

The Australian originally got interested in plant based living to get the most out of he career.  He previously told Great Vegan Athletes.

“I always start the day with a carrot juice with my juicer followed by a 6 banana smoothie with half a bag of kale for breakfast. I bring another smoothie with me to the club which has another 6 bananas in it mixed with some other fruit.”
