article imageReview: Mondo Duplantis claims silver medal at 2019 World Championships Special

By Markos Papadatos     Oct 2, 2019 in Sports
Swedish pole vaulter Mondo Duplantis has a major reason to celebrate. He took home the silver medal at the 2019 World Championships in Doha, Qatar.
This marks his first medal win at the senior level. Duplantis was able to clear 5.97 meters on his third and final attempt in the men's pole vault final, the same height that gold medalist Sam Kendricks cleared, but the countback rule worked in Kendricks' favor. Piotr Lisek of Poland came in third place with a jump of 5.87 meters.

Ironically enough, Digital Journal had listed Sam Kendricks and Mondo Duplantis as the "Ones to Watch" in the pole vault competition at the IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar, and they both won the gold and silver medal respectively.
