Simplot Games Welcomes Olympic Gold Medalist Stacy Dragila in Special Guest Interview

Simplot Games

The Simplot Games were held recently at Idaho State. This year, ISU welcomed multiple Olympian special guests, including Gold Medalist pole vaulter Stacy Dragila.

Not only are the Simplot Games an incredible opportunity for young athletes to meet and get advice from Olympians, but the alumni and Olympians themselves have a unique chance to make real differences in the next generation of athletes’ lives.

I got the chance to talk with Olympic Gold Medalist in pole vault, Stacy Dragila, about her experience coming back to the Simplot Games as an ISU alumni, and what she’s up to now regarding her sport.
