Plant Built team members competed in seven divisions, placing first in five of the seven, and also had a member rank in the top four among more than 20 omnivore competitors. Plant Built was started in the fall of 2012 “with the shared goal of promoting a plant based diet in a sport where eating animal products is widely accepted as the only way to achieve success,” the team writes on its Facebook.
