Biography

Sergey Bubka is the most dominant pole vaulter of all time. He has won 6 World Championships, from the inaugural event in 1983 through 1997. He also broke the World Record 35 times (17 outdoor, 18 indoor), usually bettering it by just 1 cm to collect prize money for each improvement. He became the first vaulter to clear 6 metres on 13 June 1985, in Paris, and set his best mark of 6.15 m in 1993. Despite his dominance, Bubka only won one Olympic medal. After missing the 1984 Games due to the Soviet boycott, he won an expected gold medal in Seoul. But in Barcelona, he was one of the Games' major disappointments, missing at his starting height in the final. Injury prevented him from competing in Atlanta, and at the Sydney Games, being past his prime, he was eliminated in qualification. Bubka then embarked on a career in sports administration and politics. Already a member of the IOC athlete's commission, he became president of the Ukrainian NOC and a full member of the IOC. From 2002 to 2006, he was a member of parliament in Ukraine, and has served on the council of the IAAF since 2001.

Personal Best: PV – 6.15i (1993).
