Introducing Allison Stokke

This is Allison Stokke of Newport Beach, California. She’s a champion pole vaulter for the University of California at Berkeley.

She originally became famous when she vaulted for Newport High School as a senior and some 60 year-old pervert posted pics of her track meet on his borderline-legal website.

Edit: she has an official Twitter account if you’re interested in keeping up with her news updates or whatever.
