Bob Richards Booking Agency Profile

Book Bob Richards for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Bob Richards was the second man to vault 15 feet and, like the first man over this height, Cornelius Dutch Warmerdam, he dominated the event for a number of years. Richards is the only man in history to win two Olympic gold medals in the pole vault, these came after an Olympic bronze in 1948. Unlike many champions in this event, he was not an outstanding collegiate athlete, and while at Illinois, his best placing at the NCAA meet came in 1947 when he was in a six-way tie for first. However, he went on to win the AAU title a record nine times and won eight AAU indoor crowns. He was also Pan American Games champion in 1951 and 1955. Richards was also a top decathlete, winning the AAU title three times and the All-Around Championship once. In the 1955 Pan American Games Decathlon he won the silver medal. In 1956 he made the Olympic team in the decathlon but, hampered by an injury, did not finish. Richards later became a familiar face on TV. Bob was the first athlete to be featured on the front of the Wheaties cereal boxes and was also the first Wheaties spokesman. .

Also, thier speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.

There is low probability to book Bob Richards for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range.

It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Bob Richards booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired.
