Ever since Allison Stokke blew up online in 2007, the internet has had a huge thing for women’s pole vaulting. The fascination has a little to do with the incredible athleticism and bravery the sport demands, and a lot to do with the fact that many of these girls are downright hot.
Case in point, meet Canadian pole vaulter Robin Bone. This University of Western Ontario vaulter is as awesome an athlete as she is gorgeous. Born in Toronto, Robin trained for 13 years as a gymnast in Darien, Connecticut earning 15 State Championship gold medals before suffering a career ending concussion in 2009. Unable to return safely to gymnastics, she turned to track and field upon her coach’s advice. Robin now vaults wearing a helmet making her the only vaulter in Canada to compete wearing head protection.
The helmet obviously has had little negative effect her athletic ability, as she is a three-time OUA Gold Medalist, two-time CIS National Gold Medalist and broke the CIS National Record with a jump of 4.36 meters. Here’s hoping we see Robin at the Olympics in Rio 2016.
