Jeffrey Kippel & Mindy Blackstien are excited to announce that Jason Powell and Kai Miranda have been appointed as Directors of Operations for the FAME World Tour. While still maintaining their roles as Co-Presidents of FAME USA, Jason and Kai now have the opportunity to share their knowledge, experience and passion for this industry with the 'WORLD'!
"Twelve years ago we started this organization with a dream to create a forum where natural athletes could showcase themselves and compete on an even playing field.
Over the years, we introduced new categories such as Figure, Fitness Model Search, Muscle Model Search, Fit Duos and Swimsuit Model Search, which have now been adopted by many other individuals running shows. We were also the first to implement the World Natural Sports Organization (WNSO) drug testing standards which include the Physique Screening round, urine testing, legal documentation and out-of-competition testing.
Never did we expect the impact we would have on so many people...worldwide. Competing has lead many to adopt a healthy lifestyle, experience personal growth, switch careers, become a role model, and has opened the door for opportunity for countless individuals including amazing exposure in magazines, television, radio and movies .
After seeing thousands of athletes grace the stage, experiencing the excitement with hundreds of thousands of fans, and realizing the impact FAME athletes have had in inspiring others through their dedication, body proud philosophy and personal transformation, we are thrilled to be able to pass on this rewarding experience to 2 great people who we know will create even more firsts, more opportunities and help bring natural athletics and physique showcase events even more to the mainstream!
A new chapter has begun. Step on board. It's going to be a fantastic ride!"
