Steve Hooker - 6m01

Another great performance by Australian Steve Hooker this weekend. In New-York he broke the American All-comers record with 6m01 and attempted the world record height of 6m16 3 times. Mr Bubka can still relax and keep his status as none of the attempts were really close, but you must admit that Hooker’s pole vaulting was pretty impressive. Last year’s Olympic Champion has been training hard over the winter, or should I say summer. His life changed 180° since winning the first Australian field medal in decades and apparently he also changed the event a bit. This photo looks awesome. Pole vaulting in the water, it doesn’t seem like it will be an official event any time soon but you must say that it looks pretty cool in this picture!
