OMORPHO, the award-winning, micro-weighted fitness brand, is proud to announce the addition of U.S. Olympian, World Champion high jumper and fashion icon Vashti Cunningham to its growing stable of athlete and fitness ambassadors. The partnership will make Cunningham a leading face for the OMORPHO G-Vest, the world’s first digitally-connected weighted vest that features the brand’s patented MicroLoad design, a revolutionary technology that evenly distributes weight across the body.
This collaboration marks a significant milestone for both OMORPHO and Cunningham, uniting two forces committed to pushing the boundaries of athletic performance and fitness fashion. OMORPHO will work with Cunningham as she vies for her third consecutive Olympic appearance and first Olympic medal, showcasing the brand's commitment to performance enhancement and cutting-edge fitness technology solutions. Off the track, Cunningham will work directly with OMORPHO designer Natalie Candrian to further push the boundaries of G-Vest.
Cunningham, a Las Vegas native and daughter of NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham, is a 13-time U.S. high jump champion, winning her most recent title with a victory at the U.S. Outdoor Track & Field Championships on July 7, 2023. She competed in the 2016 Rio Olympics and was the top American female finisher in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics placing 6th. At the age of 17 Cunningham set the national high school high-jump record and within months had also won the U.S. Junior National Championship and Pan American Junior Athletics Championships where she equaled the world youth best jump. Cunningham is currently fourth on the all-time American female high jump list with a personal record of 2.02m/6’-7.5”.
