http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/news?slug=ap-insidetherings&prov=ap&type=lgnsBEIJING (AP)—Yelena Isinbayeva got the Olympic gold and a world record; American Jenn Stuczynski got the silver and a lesson in humility.

And we now have a new rivalry that should make woman’s pole vaulting fun to watch for many more years to come.

Big poles and big mouths don’t go together. :chuckle:[hehe] Stuczynski knows that now. Pole vaulting isn’t basketball or boxing. It’s far too graceful of a sport for the kind of trash-talk she doled out before the Beijing Games.

“I hope we do some damage,” she had said, “and, you know, kick some Russian butt.”

Big mistake.

Isinbayeva is Russian but she understands English just fine. The greatest women’s pole vaulter of all time heard Stuczynski’s challenge loud and clear.

“I am not deaf,” she said. “It made me really angry.”

...

She wanted to give them more … and perhaps rub that American nose just a little deeper in the dirt.

It was showtime. Isinbayeva-time. And that meant a world record.

First, she broke the Olympic record—her own, from Athens four years ago— as an appetizer.

Then, the bar went to a height it’s never been before, 5.05 (16-6 3/4).

She got it on the last of her three tries. She was celebrating even before she had fallen back to earth. She screamed. Clutched her face. Screamed some more. Did a forward somersault. Grabbed a Russian flag from someone in the crowd and set off on a lap of honor.

And that whole time, Stuczynski was made to wait, sitting on a row of plastic chairs, until Isinbayeva had cleared the magic height.

...

Isinbayeva tried not to be smug. She had done what she had set out to do: let her vaulting do the talking.

“I just wanted to prove who is the best at the Olympic Games.”

But she couldn’t resist one last little dig

“She must respect me and … know her position,” she said.

“Now she knows it.”


thats hot. even though the russian got the better, im all for the olympian trash talk amongst the ladies. carry on, girls!

"i vill crush u" :tt:

oh, and chad and palmer insist that big poles and big mouths go "hand in hand". the bengals suck.

Along with a big ol' :egg: on that pretty face.

I agree - smacktalk is cool, as long as you walk the walk after talkin' the talk. Unfortunately in this case, that didn't happen. Oh well - the silver is nothing to be ashamed of.

You know, for all the talk about how hot the Russian pole vaulter looks, I didn't think she was anything special. Although she does gain a LOT of points in my book for being that effective at rubbing it in, and in the Olympics, no less.

Never use yellow Jello (I'm a poet and don't know it. :toofunny:). Looks too much like wee wee and it takes all the fun out of it. :wink02:

I think she's rather pretty. Russian women generally are attractive imho.

what is really appealing is that she is truly a master of her craft and a champion.

look at how she grasps that pole so firmly yet touches the end of the shaft so tenderly with her other hand. the determined look, knowing she's about to take it all, is just... well... uh... :thumbsup:

You make loads (no pun intended - LOL!) of Jello, cut it into cubes, put it in your bathtub and hop on in! It's very slippery and quite erotic. :thumbsup::wink02: Be sure to make enough jello for two! :thumbsup: Also plan on spending about 1/2 hour on the cleanup - that Jello makes quite a mess in the tubby!

Sure it could be videotaped, but I don't bother with all that. The Jello is best "served" cold - LOL! :chuckle:

OK...Tracked it down. :rolleyes:

Seems her name is Allison Stokke. In that pic she was in high school. :jawdrop: They didn't make em like that when I was in high school.

allisonstokke.jpg

Well Stokke is back on the scene as a member of the Cal Golden Bears track team with the picture to the left making its rounds.

The main positive we’re dealing with here is at least we’re all for sure now that she is, in fact, legal. That being said, her rise to internet fame over the past twelve months has reportedly freaked Allison out and pissed her father off. I tend to operate under the assumption that no publicity is bad publicity and, like myself, Allison will have her good looks to fall back on if life after college falls through. Internet losers have commented in the last 24 hours that Stokke has “let herself go” since the first picture was taken but considering we’re all bloggers and not actually athletic or famous, none of us would throw her out of bed for eating crackers.

:naughty:

my lawd!

these girls are giving Gail Devers a run for the money as far as my olympian gold standard goes.

infact, i prefer the supple softness of these ladies as opposed to the hard, chiseled (yet fine) physique of Gail- not even Jennifer Lopez can touch her booty!

(the link to her calendar photo is really nice!) :thumbsup: i'd never seen her before now. so far i have to give NBC a big thumbs down for not highlighting these fine atheletes. :Leryn Franco is just your run-of-the-mill javelin thrower/pageant queen/model with her own calendar. But during the Beijing Olympics the 26-year old Paraguayan became so much more to the American people; she became our javelin thrower/pageant queen/model with her own calendar. So, my fellow Americans, it is with a heavy heart that I regret to inform you that our favorite Paraguayan athlete (sorry Jose Luis Chilavert) was eliminated from the Olympics on Tuesday after failing to qualify for the javelin finals. Take all the time you need.
