In 2016, The Game Changers documentary will aim to do exactly what the title says. As the website says:

From a warehouse gym in Berlin and the UFC Octagon in Las Vegas, to an Olympic podium in Russia and the bushlands of Zimbabwe, The Game Changers will introduce the world to elite athletes, special ops soldiers, visionary scientists, cultural icons, and every day heroes—each on a mission to create a seismic shift in the way men eat and live.

Outerknown Evolution Menswear


Outerknown has released a new range of outerwear and board shorts made from recycled nylon sourced from reclaimed fishing nets. According to the UN FAO there are over 640,000 tons of abandoned fishing nets clogging up the oceans. Designer Kelly Slater says:

“By collecting the fishing nets that are regenerated into ECONYL® products, we lessen our environmental impact while also cleaning up the oceans that we love so much – and that unique commitment to sustainability is central to who we are as a company”

Scott Jurek, one of the best endurance athletes in the world, has set yet another record by averaging about 50 miles per day while journeying from Atlanta to Maine on the famed 2,189-mile Appalachian Trail. He did it in 46 days, eight hours and seven minutes, beating the existing record by over three hours. Jurek, like many top athletes, is a vegan.  An article from The Denver Post reads:

Jurek is one of the most famous and accomplished ultramarathoners in history and has hinted that this feat might be his last before retirement. He has won some of the sport’s most revered races, including the Western States 100 in California seven consecutive times from 1999 to 2005 and the 2007 Hardrock 100, which starts and ends in Silverton and winds through the San Juan Mountains through Lake City, Ouray and Telluride. At that race, he bested the course record at the time by more than half an hour while running with a sprained ankle.
