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 was also that year that Cal threatened us over the use of the official Allison Stokke photo the university was selling for $65. It’s the end, my friends, but not before a special look back at what was and will always be a pageview goldmine.
According to the results yesterday from Tucson, Arizona, Stokke took passes on her first two attempts and a no height on her third at 12-6 3/4. With no successful vault, the Queen of Sports Blogs was finished.
Why is this shocking? Because Stokke finished 8th at the NCAA Indoor Championships this year after clearing 13-11.75 to set a Cal indoor record in March.
It’s unclear what’s next in life for the Newport Beach, California native and one-time candidate for Spike’s Sexiest Athlete Award.
