This month, American pole vaulter Chris Nilsen had a major reason to be proud. He shattered the collegiate indoor record in the men's pole vault.
Nilsen of South Dakota was able to break Mondo Duplantis' collegiate record that he had set last year with a clearance of 5.92 meters. Nilsen eclipsed that with a jump of 5.93 meters, and he also cleared such heights as 5.84 meters, 5.73 meters, 5.53 meters, and 5.38 meters. He set the bar really high this indoor track and field season.
His incredible jump, a new collegiate indoor record, may be seen below.
In other pole vault news, Mondo Duplantis recently improved his own world record with a clearance of 6.18 meters, while Sam Kendricks had set a new American indoor record with 6.01 meters.
