FEMALE POLE VAULTER DEALS WITH SLINGS AND ARROWS OF OUTRAGEOUS ADULATION

FITSNews – May 29, 2007 – Being beautiful ourselves, we know exactly what 18-year-old pole vaulter Allison Stokke is dealing with. We want so bad for people to focus on our accomplishments, but for some reason they can’t get past our devastating good looks and rock hard abdominal muscles. Look, we know the ribbons and wrapping paper look good, people, but it’s what’s inside that matters. Anyway Stokke, who has become an Internet sensation after being featured on the popular sports blog “With Leather,” was the subject of a huge Washington Post expose this morning examining how the world wide web can turn your world upside down.

“Even if none of it is illegal, it just all feels really demeaning,” Stokke told the Post about all the unwanted attention surrounding her attractiveness. “I worked so hard for pole vaulting and all this other stuff, and it’s almost like that doesn’t matter. Nobody sees that. Nobody really sees me.”

As it turns out, that’s because a good percentage of men are still perverts. Which is doubtless what female Indy Car racer Danica Patrick was acknowledging (and capitalizing on) when she posed for some racy pictures a few years back in a popular men’s magazine. We’re not saying Stokke’s best bet is to strip down and make pouty faces at the camera (well, Sic Willie is saying that), but expecting men who never matured past fifteen to stop leering and making crass comments probably isn’t the best approach to the situation either. In other words, let the Beavis and Buttheads of the world make their “our poles are rising” jokes all they want, Allison. Your best revenge is competing well and ignoring them.

She’s got nothing on that supposed med school student with the DD? E? F? G?-sized breasts in the legendary picture with Tim Tebow. And I don’t just say that because that one post accounts for 75 percent of my hits.
