On October 5, 2019, Rickie Fowler married his longtime girlfriend, Allison Stokke on a secret beach in a private ceremony. The two, who had been dating since 2017, got engaged in 2018 just before the U.S. Open. So, who is the wife of the number 19 golfer in the world? Here are four facts about the dark-haired beauty.
Hubby Isn’t the Only Athlete in the Family
Her husband has won the PGA Tour five times. But Allison is an athlete in her own right. Her sport was track and field, and she soon set new records in pole vaulting in high school. She competed in track and field during college for the University of California, Berkeley.
She Accidentally Became a Sex Symbol
At age 17, Allison was waiting to compete in a pole-vaulting event when someone took her picture. What started out as a harmless photo of a young athlete, turned into a life-altering moment when the picture turned up on a disreputable blog. With a raunchy caption, the photo was focused on all the wrong things, causing great distress for the teen.
She Struggled for Control of Her Life
As more and more photos of her started surfacing on the internet, Allison desperately wanted to regain control of the situation. And she was beginning to realize that, due to her exposure, she was a target for stalkers. She became afraid to go to pole vaulting competitions and felt unsafe at home without all the doors locked.
She Currently Works as a Fitness Model
There is no denying that Allison has a fantastic body. But she prefers to use her looks to promote health, strength, and fitness, rather than promoting herself as a sex symbol. She finally decided to say yes to some of the many sports clothing brands that wanted her to model. It takes real commitment to stay in this kind of optimum shape, and Allison is a great example of what you can achieve with hard work and an ambitious spirit.
