Spartan gives up role as head of Miss Jamaica World pageant

Mickey Haughton-James has once again relinquished his role as head of the Miss Jamaica World beauty pageant.
 
Haughton-James made the announcement via social media on Tuesday that he has passed the baton to Aston Cooke and Weston Haughton.
 
In a statement, Haughton-James said that Spartan Health Club has changed its focus, and is not geared towards the staging of the pageant, and in particular to the management of the affairs of the winner during her reign.
 
He also expressed a strong desire to travel more often for extensive periods in his "autumn years."
 
Spartan first became associated with the pageant back in 1976, when it was asked by the Miss World Organisation to send then gym instructor Cindy Breakspeare to that contest.
 
She subsequently won it, becoming Jamaica's second title-holder.
 
Spartan again tasted success in 1993, when Lisa Hanna won the Miss World title in Sun City, South Africa.
