Rickie and Allison began dating in 2016. Soon in 2018, they got engaged and finally in October 2020, followed their wedding. At present, they are living in Jupiter in Florida. His wife Allison Stokke shot the super stardom as a pole voulter some 10 years ago as she got viral for her dazzling looks. She suffered a great deal of trauma and pressure from all of this undesired attention only to be a stronger person on the other side.
So, who exactly is Allison Stokke? to know more about her let’s dive into this article.
Who is Allison Stokke?
Allison Stokke birth took place in March 1989 in California, USA. Since she was born in an athletic family, from the very young age she was pushed towards gymnastics, similar to her older brother. Eventually she developed a passion for pole vaulting and broke several high school records.
In between all this she broke her leg twice in the high school but never gave up and went to set multiple records in scaling heights of over 4.14 m by 2006. Soon she got closer to her dream of becoming an Olympic athlete.
Why is Allison Stokke Famous?
Allison was focused towards her career and was continuously growing and in fact, she was breaking her own records but something very unexpected happened. In 2007, she went to compete in New York where someone took a photo of her for a California track and field website. This photo was soon hijacked for malicious purposes by the male dominated sports blog called “With Leather”.
Within a night or two, the then 17 year old became a super hot athlete and went viral. Her picture was all over the internet and on Facebook and was flooded with dozens of groups and people showing appreciation for the young woman’s beauty and dazzling looks. Later the owner of the blog was sued.
Becoming Viral had a Deep Impact
All of this sudden attention and stardom was very surprising and overwhelming for which Allison was not at all ready. This actually had a very deep negative impact on her and she didn’t felt good as she wasn’t admired for her skills and sporting achievements but for her looks. She also has to deal with a plenty of stalkers and was forced to lock her house’s doors because she was terrified and worried about the possible negative consequences. She also had to hire a consultant for dealing with all the photoshoot and media requests and queries she was receiving. Many big companies offered her sponsorships and asked to help her cash in on her new found fame. What affected and made her upset the most was the fact that she was only acknowledged for her looks and no one cared besides that. No one saw or admired her for the hard work she put in to become a great Pole Vaulter.
Allison went to University in California
Despite all this attention and happenings in her life, she continued and focused on her pole vaulting career. With her determination and grit she also got a full sporting scholarship to UC Berkeley where she could stay safe at home and be around her family all the time. She worked very hard in her training as well as studies. She then graduated with a Sociology degree and also worked on further improving her Pole Vaulting record up to 4.35m thus, recording a plenty of top 10 finishes. She had a dream to represent the USA at the Olympics but she couldn’t fulfil it as she failed to scale 4.25m at the Olympic trials. Still she kept going with it with hopes but couldn’t make it and rarely made to the top 30 athletes list in the USA.
