Fred Hansen's road to the Olympics started in Cuero

 

The year was 1964. The Summer Olympics were held in October in Tokyo. After a 10 hour competition, Fred Hansen snagged the gold medal in pole vaulting. 
 
This month marks the 50th anniversary of the event. His trek to the Olympics started in Cuero. Hansen recalled the events that led him to the Olympics.
 
As a boy, Hansen grew up with his parents Ellyce and Frederick Hansen on Reuss Blvd. He said he remembers being fascinated by the sport from a young age.
 
“I started in the sixth grade, watching a boy out here in Cuero High School jump. [...] It just infatuated me, how it looked, so I got a cane pole my dad had in the garage —  he used it to roll carpets —  and I taped it, so it wouldn’t break. I jumped over chairs and tables and fences.”
