Mondo Duplantis Breaks Pole Vault Record
6.17 meters (over 20 feet!)

Quote:Armand “Mondo” Duplantis, a 20-year-old Swede raised in Louisiana, broke a six-year-old record in the pole vault at an indoor meet on Saturday, according to World Athletics.

Duplantis cleared 6.17 meters — or 20 feet and nearly 3 inches — in Torun, Poland.

“It’s something that I wanted since I was 3 years old,” Duplantis said, according to World Athletics. “It’s a big year, but it’s a good way to start it.”

As he's falling back to the mat and sees the bar stay in place, he realizes he's done it -- he is the best in the world -- and extends his arms in celebration while still falling through space. So cool.

The combination of strength, coordination, and balls needed to fling your body into the air with a flexible pole is worthy of respect.
