Sweden’s Armand Duplantis set a new pole vault world record of 6.19m at the Belgrade Indoor Meeting in March.
Duplantis, who won gold at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, has had his eye on this world record and finally broke it in Belgrade. On his third attempt at the height, he cleared 6.19m.
The 22-year-old won his first senior European title in Berlin 2018, before claiming silver at the World Championships in Doha a year later. He went on to win gold at the European Indoor Championships in Torun in 2021, and will now be focusing on this year’s World and European Championships.
Can he go even higher?
