Danny is pictured above during the final of the men's Pole Vault at the 2007 European Indoor Athletics Championships in Birmingham. He won the gold medal on the countback rule after Denys Yurchenko and Bjorn Otto also cleared the same height of 5.71m. Ecker, who is the son of the two time Olympic gold medalist Heide Rosendahl, has suffered more than his fair share of disappointments having finished in 4th or 5th place at all of the major outdoor championships in which he is eligible to compete. He has fared rather better on the indoor circuit, this gold medal following on from bronzes at the 1998 Euro Indoors and the 1999 World Indoors.
