Steve Hooker created history at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, becoming the first Australian to win a gold medal in the pole vault and the first Australian field event athlete to win Olympic gold in 60 years.

 

In dramatic circumstances, Hooker twice cleared clutch jumps on his third attempt in the final, before clinching the gold medal with yet another third attempt clearance at 5.90m.

With the gold medal secured he went on to break the Olympic record, with another third and final attempt heart-stopper at 5.96m.

 

In February 2009 Steve recorded a new personal best height of 6.06m at the Boston Indoor Games.
