There is a group of people obsessed with their own path, free, without rules, leading them to extraordinary results. These people are often misunderstood, socially excluded, and classified as eccentrics, crazy people, radicals… fanatics!
For Five Thousand Miles these fanatics are inspiring because they show that absolute creative freedom is a viable path to success. Therefore, we developed the 5Fanatic brand to distinguish and sponsor these people who inspire us.
Joel Barreira is versed in the ancient art of trick shots. Not only limited to throwing cards but also ping-pong balls, CD’s, pencils you name it! Joel has a kind of grinding fanatic syndrome of hitting bullseyes no matter how long it takes. He used to call himself “CEO of Wasting time” when he was just a small content creator on TikTok. Following the advice of Pedro Hipólito, Joel decided to change his bio description to “CEO of Persistence”. Just on TikTok alone Joel has managed to gain more than 2,4 million followers and is now the first official sponsored athlete of the 5Fanatic team. Oh! and he has a pretty sick beard.
