Stacy Renée Mikaelsen Dragila

Born: March 25, 1971
 
Stacy Dragila amassed a collection of firsts in an inspiring and storied career during the rise of women’s pole vault. The Auburn, California, native and Idaho State alumna garnered track and field successes in the U.S. and abroad. During a 10-year span from 1996-2005, she was an eight-time U.S. Indoor champion and nine-time U.S. Outdoor champion. Internationally, she won the 1997 World Indoor Championship and two World Championships in 1999 and 2001. In 2001, Dragila won gold medals at the Goodwill Games and IAAF Grand Prix Final championships. She won the first women’s pole vault competition held at an Olympic Games, clearing 4.60/15-1 at the Sydney 2000 Games to equal her own world record set in 1999. Dragila stayed on top of the world for nearly four years, re-setting the world record four more times before Yelena Isinbayeva took over the record in July 2003. Dragila is the 2000 and 2001 recipient of the Jesse Owens Award, USATF’s annual honor for the athlete of the year.
