 PERFORMANCE NUTRITION SIGNS LONG JUMP RECORD HOLDER MIKE POWELL
 TO ENDORSEMENT CONTRACT
 DALLAS, May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Performance Nutrition Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PNIC) announced today the signing of an agreement with Mike Powell, the world record holder in the long jump, to endorse the company's high performance nutritional supplement products.
 Powell, a 1988 silver medalist in the long jump, broke Bob Beamon's 23-year record in 1991 by jumping 29.4 feet. Last year Powell was honored with the Jesse Owens award, the highest award bestowed upon an amateur athlete. Powell is scheduled to make several public appearances and will be featured in an upcoming national advertising campaign to kick off the company's expansion into the retail market.
 "Ranked as the No. 1 long jumper in the world for the past two years, Powell is also a fine all-around athlete," said J. David Miller, Performance Nutrition's director of public relations. "Powell won the 1990 Foot Locker 'Slamdunk Fest' competing against NBA athletes, and recently won the ABC Sports 'Superstars' title."
 According to Miller, Performance Nutrition products are designed to provide athletes with quicker recovery from strenuous workouts, improved levels of energy and strength during a workout session and added lean body mass without adding fat or water gain. "Performance Nutrition products have enabled me to train longer, jump farther and recover quicker," said Powell. "My body literally thirsts for this product."
 Performance Nutrition Inc., founded in 1988, formulates and markets a line of high-performance nutritional supplements for professional and amateur athletes. Performance Nutrition Inc. is a public company trading on the OTC Bulletin Board under the symbol "PNIC."
