At Garden of Life, we've been watching our sponsored athlete Cam F. Awesome clobber his opponents all week long at the 2013 USA Boxing Elite National Championship in Spokane, Washington. By the time he reached the finals on Saturday night against Philadelphia's former national heavyweight champion Paul Koon, we knew that Cam was about to show him what the power of eating plants can do!
The highly anticipated fight was the last match of the evening in the super heavyweight division. Cam took control early on, dodging left hooks from Koon and countering with his own jarring blows to the windpipe. He never let up, landing an onslaught of body blows that took a visible toll on Koon and led to his downfall. By the end of the match, the judges had no trouble awarding the gold medal to Cam with a unanimous 3-0 decision.
An elated Cam took a victory spin around the ring in his cape and then thanked his sponsors, including Garden of Life, JumpNRope, IntimidationMMA, Ring Side Boxing, iXLDoU and Engine2Diet. The plant-based boxer from Lenexa, Kansas, largely credits his vegan lifestyle to his continued success, as the win over Koon marked his ninth national title. As part of his plant-based diet, Cam stays ahead of the competition with Garden of Life's raw, vegan, non-GMO, USDA Certified Organic supplements, including RAW Protein, RAW Meal, RAW ONE for Men multivitamins, and more.
After his match, Cam was inundated by congratulatory wishes from family and friends and tweeted, "Who thought a vegan could do this?"
WE DID, and we agree he's AWESOME!
