Teen pole-vaulter gains enormous unwanted attention

Everyone loves to be the center of attention but any unwanted attention can be a pain in the you know what instead of a blessing or luxury. Such is the case with 18 year old Allison Stokke from California, USA.

She won a 2004 California state pole vaulting title, has broken five national records and earned a scholarship to the University of California. She also is graduating with above a 4.0 grade point average, and will attend Cal-Berkeley this Fall.

Allison is a very attractive, athletic girl (still in high school!!!) that has spawned a cult-like following on the Internet ever since a few pictures from a her at a track meet got passed around cyberspace.

Evidently her popularity has only grown, as The Washington Post just published an article about this young, talented 18 year old pole vaulter, and the price of her newfound fame. Allison and her family have grown frustrated with all of the unwanted attention. She is an extremely well-rounded teenager who has worked hard for her accomplishments (which are plenty). Now thouands of bloggers are posting the picture shown above, often pairing it with lewd and disrespectful comments.

From her computer at home, Stokke tracked the spread of her image with dismay and disbelief. She had dealt with this once before, when a track fan posted a lewd comment and a picture of her on a message board two years earlier. Stokke had contacted the poster through e-mail and, a few days later, the image had disappeared. But what could she do now, when a search for her name in Yahoo! revealed almost 310,000 hits? “It’s not like I could e-mail everybody on the Internet,” Stokke said.

    Well she has a hot body for sure but she is not really to blame for the unwanted publicity she is getting.
