article imageReview: Mondo Duplantis clears 5.94 meters in the men's pole vault Special

By Markos Papadatos     Apr 28, 2019 in Sports
Baton Rouge - On April 27, teen pole vaulter Mondo Duplantis cleared the second highest height of his career in the men's pole vault: 5.94 meters, in his own home state of Lousiana.
This impressive clearance of 5.94 meters by Duplantis took place at the Bernie Moore Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for the LSU Invitational. His jump was superb and he had plenty of room left.
Duplantis also subsequently took three strong attempts at 6.01 meters with no success; hopefully, this is a harbinger of bigger clearances for the young athlete in the near future. He is coached by his father, former pole vaulter Greg Duplantis.
To this day, Duplantis' personal best in the men's pole vault is 6.05 meters, which he cleared at the European Championships in Berlin last August. In doing so, Duplantis had set a new world junior record, and a world-leading mark last year.
