Prolonged, extended in advance of the world was obsessed with the romance of Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, the golf planet bought all worked up more than an even a lot more athletic celeb pair. You had PGA Tour star Rickie Fowler and Allison Stokke of track-and-field fame. Yet again, it wasn’t rather Taylor-Travis, but it was remarkable occasions about listed here.
And whilst we have to hold out to see if Taylor-Travis will stand the test of time or if their romantic relationship is all some big PR stunt, Rickie and Allison were—and are—the actual thing. The two acquired hitched in 2019 and had their initial kid in 2021. But on Wednesday Rickie revealed they had a little something considerably more scarce at their property. A pole vault pit. Yep, a pole vault pit.
Okay, so it helps make perfect feeling when you try to remember that Stokke was a pole vaulter with Olympic hopes following earning All-American honors at Cal in 2011. So even though she did not very signify the red, white, and blue at the greatest level like her husband is carrying out at this week’s Ryder Cup, she was an elite pole vaulter. And why would not an elite pole vaulter have her possess pole vault pit at her dwelling if she have the area? Stokke posted photos of her setup a several many years again.
It was a number of decades back again. My wife, she pole vaulted and has stored up with Mondo’s job. He is certainly a really remarkable pole vaulter and carries on to split his individual earth record. We essentially had a pole vault pit at our dwelling in Florida, and Mondo and his brother, Andreas, came to pick that up. We didn’t need to have it anymore. So that’s now his observe pit back again in Louisiana.
It was type of fun mainly because we had been ready to make a couple-working day journey out of it. They arrived down, played some golf, got to shell out some time with him and his brother.
Mondo is an impressive athlete. I was surely impressed by his golf game.
They’re a really gifted loved ones. I know his brother plays baseball. I’m not confident if a lot of people observe pole vaulting or anything at all —
We never, Rickie, but the much more you know, ideal? Sounds like Mondo is going to be even tougher to defeat now. Anyway, this clearly has practically nothing to do with Staff USA’s prospects this 7 days. Or what Rickie has replaced the pole vault pit with in his backyard. Appear to feel of it, we’re disappointed no a single questioned a observe-up question. Oh perfectly, upcoming time.
