1964: Fred Hansen of Cuero, Tex., won the gold medal in the pole vault at the Tokyo Olympics, defeating Wolfgang Reinhardt of Germany with an Olympic record of 16 feet 83/4 inches. Hansen used one of the new slingshot fiberglass Sky Poles that had recently transformed vaulting. Within the previous two years, John Uelses and John Pennel, both of the United States, had broken the forbidding 16- and 17-foot barriers with fiberglass.
