An 18-year-old pole vault prodigy, Duplantis triumphed at the 2018 European Championships in Berlin, Germany, where he won the men's pole vault competition with a world leading mark, and a new world junior record of 6.05 meters. At that European championship, Duplantis cleared three heights (5.95 meters, 6.00 meters and 6.05 meters), all on his first attempt.
This year's "European Athlete of the Year" winners will be officially announced at the Golden Tracks award ceremony on October 26, which will take place in Lausanne, Switzerland.
