Mike Fremont is a vegan marathon runner who was born in 1922. He's the World Record holder for the marathon at age groups 88, 89 and 91. He's also the World Record holder for the half marathon at the ages of 90 and 91.
In the following interview with the Centre For Nutrition Studies, he explains how he got cancer when he was 69 years old and given 3 months to live. He changed his diet to a vegan, wholefood, plant-based one and has gone on to become a World Class athlete.
“Training is important,” he told Running Times’ Mike Tymn, “but when you get to be my age, you’re not going to able to train at all unless your body holds up. I simply cannot overemphasize the importance of the plant-based diet to my performance.”
