She won a California state championship at only 15 at Newport Harbor High School.
Born to Allan and Cindy Stokke in Newport Beach, California, Stokke grew up in a sporting family – her older brother David was a national level youth gymnast. After trying gymnastics, she took up pole vaulting while attending Newport Harbor High School and soon became one of the country's best young vaulters. She won the age 15/16 United States title in 2004 with a championship record of 3.81 m (12 ft 6 in).
She broke the American record for a high school freshman with a vault of 3.86 m (12 ft 7 ⁄4 in) in 2004 and then set a new high school sophomore record with 4.11 m (13 ft 5 ⁄4 in) in 2005. Her vaults were also the best ever achieved by an American aged fifteen and sixteen. Despite breaking her leg while in high school, she managed to win twice at the CIF California State Meet. In her senior year of high school, she ranked second in the national high school rankings with a new best of 4.14 m (13 ft 6 ⁄4 in). She finished eighth at the national junior championships that year.
Images of Stokke competing in New York in early 2007 were taken by a journalist for a Californian track and field website and placed online. In May, the image was then re-posted by With Leather, a sports blog with a large male fanbase, remarking on the attractiveness of seventeen-year-old Stokke under the heading "Pole Vaulting is Sexy, Barely Legal". The photographer threatened to sue site owner Matt Ufford if he did not remove the image, but the article had already received significant attention and been posted at dozens of other websites. A tribute website to Stokke soon emerged with several images of her competing in the pole vault and, after these images spread via social media, Internet fan groups attracted thousands of followers. Within several weeks, her photos had become such an Internet phenomenon that they generated comment pieces nationally from The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and The New York Times, and internationally from British broadcaster the BBC, Australian daily The Sydney Morning Herald, and the German weekly Der Spiegel, in addition to more than one million search engine results. CBS also gave television coverage, using her story to highlight the dangers of the internet being used to publicly sexualize young people.
Stokke had more success in her second year at college, scaling 4.21 m (13 ft 9 ⁄2 in) in Sacramento, California, under the close observation of Cal coach and former five-time All-American at UCLA, Scott Slover. She finished eighth at the Pac-10 Championships, seventh at the MPSF Indoor Championships, debuted at the NCAA Women's Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships, ranking 19th with her best effort of 3.90 m (12 ft 9 ⁄2 in). She focused on her studies in her third year at Berkeley and received conference all-academic honors at Pac-10 and MPSF level, as well as getting an honorable academic mention by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. In her last year of collegiate vaulting, she did not improve her best, finishing eighth at the Pac-10 Championships and missing qualification for the NCAA Championships by two places at the regionals. However, in 2011 Stokke did place eighth at the NCAA Indoor Championships held at Texas A&M, clearing 4.10 m (13-05.25) on her first attempt, which secured All-American status.
After finishing her degree, she continued to pole vault, although she did not rank highly among American athletes. A new lifetime best of 4.36 m (14 ft 3 ⁄2 in) came in the 2012 season as she aimed for the 2012 London Olympics. However, she did not perform well at the 2012 United States Olympic Trials, as one of 12 competitors who failed to clear the opening height of 4.25 m (13 ft 11 ⁄4 in). Her performances declined thereafter, with a best of 4.20 m in 2013 and 3.95 m in 2014. Her 2015 best of 4.15 m (13 ft 7 ⁄4 in) (achieved in a third-place finish at the National Pole Vault Summit) was an improvement but still ranked her outside of the top 30 American women that year.
She became a sportswear model, appearing in campaigns for Nike, Inc. and Athleta in 2015, and Uniqlo in 2016. She also began to work with GoPro, delivering a series of videos of her vaulting heights with the camera attached to her pole to demonstrate the inner working of the sport and advertise the action camera equipment. By 2016, these videos have received in excess of six million views on YouTube.
Stokke started dating American professional golfer Rickie Fowler in 2017. They became engaged in June 2018, and were married in October 2019.
Allison grew up in Newport Beach with her father, mother Cindy, and her brother Matt.
