Where is Allison Stokke now? Wiki Bio
Allison Stokke was born in Newport Beach, California USA, on 22 March 1989, so under the zodiac sign of Aries and holding American nationality – she is popular for her careers of a fitness model and a track and field athlete. Today, she is competing as a pole vaulter, and working as a model.
Early life and education
Allison spent her entire childhood in Newport Beach alongside her parents Allan and Cindy Stokke – both her mother and father are very sporting, and Allison inherited that love of sports from them. She has an older brother named David who is very sporting as well, and who has become a gymnast competing in national competitions.
Allison tried gymnastics for the first time while she was enrolled at Newport Harbor High school – she was especially interested in pole vaulting, and it didn’t take her long to become one of the best young vaulters in the US. Her first notable achievement was in 2004 when she won the US title with her record of 3.81m or 12ft 6ins.
Some of the records Allison set while she was 16 still haven’t be broken by anyone including the vault of 4.11m in 2005. Breaking her leg two times didn’t stop Allison from winning the CIF California State Meet twice, and improve her record to 4.14m.
Career of a model
At the beginning of 2007, Allison’s photos were uploaded onto a website on the internet, with the caption reading ‘Pole Vaulting is Sexy, Barely Legal’. The journalist who captured these photos wanted to sue Matt Ufford, the owner of the website onto which the pictures were uploaded, but it was late – the website was visited by thousands of people, and Allison’s pictures were being shared all around the internet.
As Allison became very popular on the internet, she was covered by some of the most respected US newspapers and magazines including “The Washington Post”, “Los Angeles Times”, and “The New York Times” while she was also talked about on the UK’s “BBC” channel, Australia’s “The Sydney Morning Herald” and “Der Spiegel” German newspapers. Most of the media talked about Allison as an attractive and very successful athlete, while pointing out the danger the internet might hide.
Alisson wasn’t able to get a hold of the situation by herself, and therefore hired a professional to take care of matters on the internet for her. Her father joined the professional, but was mostly focused on finding stalkers and demented people on the internet, so that he could report them to authorities. Allison began attending photoshoots as a fitness model, but wasn’t happy about her modelling career as she wanted people to appreciate her for her career as an athlete and not because of her looks – as German reporters explained, ‘Allison became a sex symbol against her will’.
Allison’s career of a pole vaulter
After matriculating from high school at the age of 17, Alisson won an athletic scholarship and enrolled at the University of California, Berkeley to study sociology. She continued her great vaulting performances, and broke the record held by a freshman with 4.11m.
She training even harder and broke her own record during her second year, with 4.21m at a competition held in Sacramento. She attended several competitions but only got as far as eighth place – she won her All-American status during her final year eighth place during the NCAA Indoor Championships at Texas A&M (Allison jumped 4.1m).
After she graduated from college, Allison improved her personal best to 4.36m, however, she wasn’t performing to her best, and wasn’t able to qualify for the London Olympics held in 2012.
After her relative failures in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, Allison became more focused on her modelling career, and she posed for Nike, Athleta, and Uniqlo. She also collaborated with GoPro in 2015 – they attached a camera to her pole and these videos on YouTube were seen more than six million times by 2016.
Allison is still competing in pole vaulting, but hasn’t achieved any further notable results.
Love life and relationships
Allison is very secretive when it comes to her love life, which is a consequence of her internet fame which she did not want – she hasn’t talked about any men she might have dated before the man she is currently engaged to.
Allison met her other half Rickie Fowler sometime in 2015 at a party for popular athletes. Rickie Fowler is a professional golfer, and was invited to join the party by his friend who later introduced him to Allison. The two seemed to be interested in one another and went on a date as soon as they both had some free time. It appears that they are indeed a good match as they have been dating ever since, and even more – Rickie got on his one knee in 2017 and asked Allison to marry him and her answer was positive. While there is no evidence in the media regarding their wedding, they are rumored to have exchanged their wedding vows already, and judging by one of the pictures Allison has uploaded onto her Instagram account, they might be parents to twin boys.
Likes and other interests
Alisson is still very keen on pole vaulting, and spends most of her free time exercising and preparing for competitions, however, she still finds time for some of her other interests and hobbies.
Allison has become interested in golf thanks to her fiancé (or husband) as he is a professional golfer – he taught her how to play the popular sport, while she can also be seen attending most of his competitions. Alisson is a big traveler, and has been around the US, and a couple of countries in Europe – she mostly travels with Rickie, but sometimes goes alone. She will always choose nature over big cities and crowds, and especially likes waterfalls and mountains. She enjoys paddle-boarding but still prefers winter over summer, as skiing and snowboarding are things she prefers doing over all others.
Late at night, Allison likes to watch a good movie while the genre depends on her mood – she can watch a romantic comedy or a good action movie if she feels like it. Two of her favorite movies are “The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and “Johnny English”.
Appearance and net worth
Allison is currently 30 years old. She has long brown hair and brown eyes, is 5ft 7ins (1.7m) tall, and weighs around 115lbs (52kgs).
According to authoritative sources, her current net worth is estimated to be more than $600,000, and is steadily rising thanks to her career in sports and as a model.
