DRAGILA Stacy (1971) United States / Track and field
Although Stacy Dragila won the first women's Olympic pole-vault gold medal in Sydney in 2000, the American started out as a heptathlete, where she was seen as a major hopeful. However, her coach asked her to try out the pole-vault in the early Nineties as a form of training. Despite her initial difficulties, she got hooked on the sport and became an ambassador for the discipline in an attempt to have it recognised as an official women's event.Her Olympic title is ample recompense for her perseverance.
