Sergey Bubka is a living legend in athletics. From 1983 to 1997 he incontestably dominated pole-vaulting. Throughout this period, he broke no less than 35 world records (for the most part his own). He holds the overall record with a jump of 6.14m in July 1994.


After winning the Gold Medal in Seoul in 1988 he is the only athlete from any discipline to hold six world championship titles.


He is currently Executive Board Member of the IOC, and is involved in many charitable associations.
