Hooker was victorious in one of the most-exciting contests of the 2008 Olympics, winning the men’s pole vault on his third and last attempt after repeatedly bouncing back from the brink of elimination. After securing the gold medal, the daring Australian went on to break the Olympic Record for the event. This will be Hooker’s second appearance at the Reebok Boston Indoor Games, following a win in 2007.
