The sports world is one largely dominated by celebrities. Every sport has its famous figures, that attract huge contracts and multi-million-dollar sponsorship deals. Many of those stars go on to crossover careers in film, TV and music. Can you name three famous track and field stars?
Allison Stokke is, arguably, the most famous pole vaulter in history. She started pole vaulting when she was a teenager and was exceptionally talented at her sport. But it wasn't her sports ability that delivered her to celebrity. It was a seemingly innocuous photo, taken during a high school track meet, that would make her into an overnight viral sensation. Her life was changed forever, and largely in a negative way.
