Swedish Armand Duplantis won the highest final in history

?The young man 18-year-old won over Morgunov (6m) and Lavillenie (5.95m) in the final highest jump of pole in history.

??Duplantis jumped 6.05m to take the gold medal and enter the history of the over 6 meters. It was exceptional.

?His jump of 6.05 placed him second in the all-time outdoor world rankings, behind only the 6.14 of Ukrainian Sergey Bubka.


The thing was between Renaud Lavillenie and Armand Duplantis who warmed up together, two who understand each other because they share the same madness PROWESS.

However, a boy called Armand Duplantis of 18 who had already exceeded ten times the 5.90 meters, but last Sunday he improved by 12 centimeters and without missing a single jump until achieving his winning mark.

Armand Mondo Duplantis (born November 10, 1999) is a Swedish-American Pole Vaulter.  He is considered to have huge talent, clearing great heights at a very young age and  follow the footsteps of the greatest pole vaulters such as Bubka and Lavillenie.

FUNNY ANECDOTE: He started jumping at 4 years old, without fear and had to make a pole specially for him: “It was tiny, like a fishing rod”. He was still unable to fold a normal pole and one day, watching his icons on TV, he said to his father: “Dad, I want to fold too”

The Swedish is a beast despite being junior. So far:
  1. 2015, Duplantis represented Sweden for the first time at the 2015 World Youth Championships in Cali, Colombia; he won gold on countback with a first-attempt clearance of 5.30 m.

  2. 2016, Duplantis cleared 5.49 m at a high school meet in Baton Rouge on February 6, 2016, setting a new age 16 world best.

  3. 2017, Duplantis jumped 5.90 m at the Nike Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays, improving his personal record and setting a new World Junior Record. The jump also became a Swedish senior record by 3 cm.

  4. 2018, Duplantis began his 2018 season by improving upon the World Indoor Junior Record by jumping 5.83 at the Pole Vault Summit in Reno, Nevada. He later improved his indoor record to 5.88 metres and reached 6.05 metres at the 2018 European Athletics Championships.

Here you can see his  WINNER JUMP of 6,05

Duplantis said,

Being 18 years old frees me from the pressure that older people have. Although from the last two meetings we have faced, people are much more aware of me, so I have some pressure, but I think it’s a positive thing.
