Stockholm - On June 10, 2018, Mondo Duplantis won first place in the men's pole vault comeptition at the IAAF Diamond League in Stockholm.
Duplantis was able to clear 5.86 meters on his first attempt, which was enough to secure him the win. He also raised the bar to 5.96 meters, hoping for a personal best and a new world leading mark, but was unsuccessful. This victory is quite special for 18-year-old Mondo Duplantis since he competes for Sweden; moreover, this marks the first time that he ever beat American pole vaulter Sam Kendricks in his athletic career.
Kendricks came in second place with 5.81 meters, and Polish pole vaulter Piotr Lisek came in third place with 5.76 meters.
Last month, Duplantis came in second place at the Prefontaine (Pre) Classic in Eugene, Oregon, with 5.71 meters.
Duplantis holds the world junior record in pole vault with 5.93 meters.
