article imageReview: Mondo Duplantis finishes 2nd in IAAF Diamond League Paris Special

By Markos Papadatos     Jun 30, 2018 in Sports
Paris - On June 30, 2018, Swedish pole vaulter Mondo Duplantis competed in the men's pole vault competition at the IAAF Diamond League in Paris.
After an intense competition with American pole vaulter Sam Kendricks, Duplantis finished in second place. He was able to clear 5.90 meters on his third and final attempt, thus showcasing his tremendous agility and hip height. Duplantis also attempted 5.96 meters twice, and once at 6.01 meters, with no further success.
With his clearance of 5.90 meters, Duplantis bested Frechman and world record holder Renaud Lavillenie, who came in third place with 5.84 meters, as well as Polish pole vaulter Piotr Lisek and Canadian pole vaulter Shawn Barber, both of which came in fourth and fifth place respectively, with 5.84 meters. Lavillenie and Lisek benefited from the count-back rule since they both cleared 5.84 meters on their first attempt, while it took Barber two tries to jump over 5.84 meters.
A few weeks ago, as Digital Journal reported, Duplantis won first place in Montreuil, France, where yet again he triumphed over Lavillenie.
On June 10, 2018, Duplantis also won first place in the IAAF Diamond League meet in Stockholm, with 5.86 meters.
