How Did Allison Meet Rickie?
It was Rickie who made the first move. He slid into Allison’s DMs before they began dating.

The long-known in golf for his single status made his romance debut with the former professional track and field athlete via Instagram in April 2017.
After connecting via Instagram, they made their public debut at the Moto GP Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas.
About a month later, the pair enjoyed a vacation in the Bahamas. Rickie added a “Rick Found a Chick” hashtag to their selfie, outwardly referring to his girl.
The pair dated for a year before the California native Rickie popped the big question ahead of the annual US Open golf tournament.
Interested in a destination wedding, the pair tied the knot in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in front of only 48 guests on October 5, 2019.

Early Life, Parents, Siblings & Education
The 34 years old Allison Stokke was born on March 22, 1989, in Newport Beach, California, United States, to her lawyer father, Allan Stokke, and mother, Cindy Stokke.
Allison grew up in a sporting family since her older brother David Stokke was a national-level gymnast.
Following her brother’s footsteps, Allison tried gymnastics initially but later took pole vaulting while attending Newport Harbor High School.
She became one of the country’s best young pole vaulters as a high schooler.
She had an outstanding high school career and was recruited by universities such as Stanford, UCLA, and Harvard, but ultimately chose UC Berkeley.
Stokke broke a freshman record with Berkeley’s track and field team in 2008, and during her junior year, she placed 8th at the Pac-10 championships.
Height & Weight
Allison Stokke is a 34-year-old athlete, model, mother, and a loving wife.
She became an internet sensation when her photo went viral in 2007, opening numerous other opportunities.
Her look and body figure made her a sex symbol against her will. Nevertheless, despite overwhelmingly sexist comments, she eventually had to embrace her newfound fame. So she did.
Talking about her height and weight, she stands 1.70 meters tall and weighs around 115 lbs.
Allison Stokke became famous practically overnight, not because of her amazing pole vaulting techniques but because of her exquisite looks.
In 2007, pictures of then-teenage Allison Stokke pole vaulting, taken by a journalist for a California track and field website, went viral.
The same image was re-posted by With Leather in May on a sports blog with a predominantly male fan base remarking on the beauty of 17-year-old Allison.
The photographer threatened to file a lawsuit against the site owner Matt Ufford if he did not take down the pictures.
Nonetheless, by this time, the article had already received attention and had been posted on numerous other websites.
This uproar drew media attention from several major outlets, such as the Washington Post and the New York Post.
Speaking with the Los Angeles Times, Allison said the unwanted attention felt “a little creepy.”
Even though she initially tried to control the overwhelming situation herself, she was forced to look for a media consultant to handle her fame after being bombarded with photo shoot requests and emails.
Net Worth & Income
Rickie Fowler’s loving spouse, Allison Stokke, as of November 2023, holds a net worth of around $500k, which is way less than her husband’s $40 million.
Her half-a-million fortune can be attributed to her pole vaulting and modeling career.
But we are not sure how much she made over the course of her athletics career because there are no major titles under her belt.
After the 2012 Olympics Trials, her performances suffered, ranking her outside the top 30 American women that year.
However, with her newfound fame, she indeed made quite a money from brand deals, photo shoots, and other projects.
Brand Endorsement Deals
After fame came knocking on her door, she could not help but accept and embrace the addons it came with.
She became a sportswear model and appeared in campaigns for several big brands such as Athleta, Nike Inc., and Uniqlo.
Likewise, she also started working with GoPro delivering a series of videos of her pole vaulting with the camera attached to her pole.
- Stokke tried to make the American Olympic team at the 2012 United States Olympic Trials but failed to record a height.
- As a high school senior, she finished eighth at the national junior championships.
- While at the University of California, Berkeley, Stokke competed at two NCAA Division I Championships achieving All-American honors.
