CCC Alum Becky Holliday Headed to Summer Olympics

Clackamas Community College alumna and world-class pole vaulter Becky Holliday is headed to London for the Summer Olympics. Holliday qualified for the U.S. Olympic team in pole vaulting competition over the weekend at the Olympic trials in Eugene, jumping 14 feet, 11 inches, and taking second place. 

Holliday is the national junior college record holder, and school record holder at both CCC and the University of Oregon, where she was named the NCAA champion in 2003. A native of Reno, Nev., Holliday was the state high school pole vault champion before arriving in Oregon on a track and field scholarship. At CCC, she was the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges pole vault champion in both 2000 and 2001. She’s been a pole vaulter now for 15 years.

Holliday is not the first CCC alum to participate in the Olympics. Former CCC wrestler Matt Lindland won the silver medal in his weight class in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia. CCC athlete Brian Abshire competed in steeplechase, and Lisa Ondicki was the silver medalist in the marathon in the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.
