This past weekend, news came out that Australian pole vaulter Steve Hooker has decided to retire from Athletics and pursue “the next chapter of my life with my family and friends”. Gill Athletics wants to send proper well wishes and good luck to Steve and his family.
“We loved watching Steve win Olympic and World Champs gold on CarbonFx. We thought he had a real shot at the world record and he surely will go down as one of the all-time great vaulters. We wish him all the best as he enters the next phase of his life,” said Gill Athletics CEO David Hodge.
