Episode 08: Tim Shieff
Tim Shieff describes himself thus… “professional freerunner to professional vegan when I had my ‘awakening’ then became a truth and a health seeker, which eventually led me away from veganism with a ‘second awakening’.”
Tim Shieff won the 2009 Barclaycard World Freerun Championship and participated on the television programme MTV’s Ultimate Parkour Challenge. Born in Hartford, Connecticut, he competed in three American Ninja Warrior tournaments from 3-5, and has appeared in the first three USA vs. The World tournaments, captaining Team Europe and representing his country of residence: Great Britain. He also competed in the first two Ninja Warrior UK tournaments, earning the title of Last Man Standing in the first.
Tim was featured in the vegan propaganda film, What the Health? But asked for his contribution to the latest vegan film, “Game Changers” to be omitted from the final cut. He even took part in the filming of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, in the role of a Death Eater (which, I thought, is kind of amusing for an ex-vegan). Tim also founded his own vegan clothing company, ETHCS, and he now speaks out bravely about his loss of faith in veganism despite attacks from vegans and having to bow out of ETHCS.
