Vegan bodybuilder Torre Washington scooped fifth place at the recent Canadian Physique Alliance Ben Weider Natural Pro competition.

Washington was one of 16 pro entrants in the Men’s Physique category; and was pleased with his placing.

‘Work on improving’

“We got top five,” 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.”

Washington has been vegan since 1998, a decision he made linked to his Rastafarian beliefs and an urge to avoid harming animals.

A comeback

Washington 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 category.

Making the stage after the accident is a major achievement, although Malik told Great Vegan Athletes: “I’m not finished yet.”

The athlete has been vegan since birth and enthusiastically continues this lifestyle in competition.
