Armand DUPLANTIS - Sweden - 2019 World Championship silver medal

Armand Duplantis clears the bar at 5.92m on his third attempt (!) and is set to battle with

Sam Kendricks for the title of World Champion.

Both then cleared 5.97m - each on their third attempt - but the American had by then taken

fewer failures and was crowned champion. Duplantis could be called American having been born

in Lafayette, Louisiana, U.S.  His mother Helena is Swedish, his father Greg is American.

 

In February 2020 Armand set a new World Record of 6.17m in Poland and then a week later

in Glasgow he improved it to 6.18m. He earned $30,000 for the record in Glasgow.
