    I kid around about having a crush on Stacy Dragila but the Stokke phenomenon just creeps me out. The comments on her are just offensive and I feel for not only her, but her family and friends. Yes, she's an attractive young woman, but it's her pole vaulting that makes her unique, and that should be what people focus on. Aren't there enough porn sites on the internet to satisfy young sicko minds? Why drag her into their perversions? I'm starting to see why gh is so quick to get the hook out on athletes' looks posts. Pole vaulting isn't the same as pole dancing. :roll:

    I don't think the problem is just "young" sicko minds. I'd chalk it up just as much to dirty old men. Yes, doing a google search on Stokke reveals that there are a whole lot of creepy losers out there.

    I have been getting emails about her for months. I have emailed various websites asking them to take down the pictures, as she is under 18 in most of them. Some have and some haven't. I have deleted numerous threads from my website from sickos who have signed up just to try and find out more about her,

    It's crud like this that makes my decision to send my daughter to a monastery in the Himalayas that much easier. We'll bring her down from the mountain for the Olympics and World Championships, then straight back to the monastery.

    "kidding" is in the eye of the beholder; suspect if I were Dragila's husband and followed your postings we'd have had a nasty little meeting by now.

    Edited to add a PS

    PS--if I actually thought there was anything "wrong" with the fixation, I'd have killed it. I'm just pointing out the extreme end of the spectrum where it becomes personal to someone.

    I'd bet anything he'd be amused and a little flattered. When someone says something nice about my wife or daughter's looks/personality, it makes me feel good. If I actually communicated with SD in this vein, or posted tawdry remarks about her (which, as you can vouch for me - even though you once misinterpreted my statement that I'd love to sit down and have lunch with her one day (yes, I remember that) - I never have), then you would have a good point, but as it is, as I hope you see, my affection for SD is a far cry from ANYTHING like what's been happening with Stokke. And I thank you for the PS.

    As I remember it tafnut's affection for Stacey is a result of a lovely meeting he and his daughter had with her at a meet.

    I know myself that a positive encounter with a star of the sport, no matter how brief, can make you a fan for life.

    I feel very sorry for Stokke and hope she is a very mature and confident young woman.

    I coached a beautiful girl a few years ago who became the object of a lot of attention (including fom a very famous Canadian athlete who shall Iemain nameless). At first all the attention was flattering and yet over time it became too much. She devloped a serious eating disorder and eventually with our support dropped out of the sport to find herself.
    She is now doing very well!

    i am in no way saying Stokke will develop an ED but you never know.We don't really know what is going on in the minds of young women until the a problem maifests itself.
    I wish her all the best with her athletic endeavors.

    This just in - attractive, high acheiving young women, whether it be in movies, music, or athletics, get attention. :shock:

    How they handle it will determine if they become like Allyson Felix or Britney Spears. Alot of it has to do with what kind of home life they have, and near as I can tell Stokke will do just fine, just like Felix has.
    There are no strings on me

    Exactly. A lot of apoplexy which achieves nothing.
    Take good care of yourself.
