Vegan powerlifter sets new record
How are your fitness goals coming?
Iceland Monitor wants the world to know that Hulda B. Waage has set a new Iceland record. The vegan powerlifter even surprised herself, deadlifting 205 kilos to take the title in a championship this past weekend.
That’s 451 pounds or 32 stones for the readers following along in the US and UK, or somewhere in the ballpark of 2,255 Field Roast Sausage Links (an easy vegan favourite). Yes, I did the math, and yes, I am equal parts hungry and motivated to work out.
Hulda’s message is a powerful one that needs to be repeated:
“You can be strong without eating meat and animal byproducts.”
The inspiring powerlifter and mum has given new meaning to #veganpower, and posts a motivating combination of colourful salads and in-the-gym videos to her Instagram feed. Hulda will now live alongside Torre and Patrik in our fandom, and all the other incredible athletes reminding their spectators that you don’t need to use animals to be strong.
