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.
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.
