Big news from yesterday's U.S. Track & Field pole vaulting trials? Allison Stokke failed to make the London Olympics because she couldn't clear the starting height. Of course it's devastating news to the Internet which had interest in pole vaulting over the last five years thanks to Stokke's seemingly perfectly tanned legs and the pageviews those legs generated. JUMP!
There was a major development in the hot chick/athlete world yesterday that made no blogs, no television reports, no newspapers, etc. Allison Stokke, a senior at Cal, finished her conference career with a dud "No Height" in the Pac-10 Championships, ending the run of one of the Internet's sports darlings. It seems like just yesterday we were discovering her very first collegiate image, which sent the sports blogs into a frenzy way back in 2008. It's the end, my friends, but not before a special look back at what was and will always be a pageview goldmine.
