Sarah Sjöström Turns Vegetarian in Chase of Olympic Gold


‘Three months ago I switched to a vegetarian diet. I feel it partly in the gym – I have become a lot stronger, it is just personal records all the time in the gym. I feel that I have more energy, I am sleeping sleep a lot better at night, and it feels like my mood is more stable. I am inspired by, among others, Lars Frolander and Therese Alshammar, who both made changes to their diet towards the end of their careers.’
