Sportsman that inspires me

Sport plays a no major role in my life. But I like everything about sport. I find it very enjoyable to watch or to play.
Serhiy Nazarovych Bubka Serhiy Nazarovych Bubka is an Ukranian retired pole vaulter. Bubka won six consecutive IAAF World Championships, Olympics gold and broke the world record for men's pole vaulting 35 times (17 outdoor and 18 indoor records). He was the first to clear 6.0 metres and the remains the only (as of September 2013) to clear 6.10 metres (20 ft). He holds the current outdoor world record of 6.14 metres, (20 feet 13⁄4 inches), set on 31 July 1994 in Sestriere, Italy and the current indoor world record of 6.15 meters, set on 21 February 1993 in Donetsk, Ukraine.
Bubka broke the world record for men's pole vaulting a total of 35 times in his career. He broke the outdoor world record 17 times and the indoor world record 18 times. In his dominance, Bubka lost his outdoor world record only once in his illustrious career. After Thierry Vigneron, of France, broke his record on 31 August 1984 at the Golden Gala international track meet in Rome, Bubka subsequently reclaimed the record on his next run, just minutes later. The fact that most of the time the record he improved was his own demonstrates his absolute dominance in the event.
Exactly how high he could have jumped at his best is unknown: because of the large prizes on offer from event promoters for breaking world records, the majority of his world record attempts were made at 1 cm higher than the existing record, and once achieved, he would not attempt another record jump until the next opportunity to collect a prize, even after a substantial clearance showing he could have achieved a higher height.
I admire this outstanding athlete and his accomplishments. He inspires me to feats and records. Thank you, Sergey.
