2004 Olympic gold medalist pole vaulter Tim Mack has a major reason to be proud. He is headed to the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame.
Mack will be inducted in the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame's Class of 2018, and rightfully so.
After clearing 5.95 meters at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, Mack won the gold medal for the Team USA, and set an Olympic record doing so, at the time. American pole vaulter Toby Stevenson came in second place, earning the silver, with 5.90 meters.
In 2002 and 2010, Mack was named "USA Indoor Pole Vault Champion."
Most impressive about Tim Mack is that he is one of the pole vaulters in the elite six meter club. His personal best is 6.01 meters, which he accomplished at the IAAF World Athletics Final in Monte Carlo, Monaco, in September of 2004, a few weeks after his Olympic win.
