article imageReview: Mondo Duplantis wins the pole vault at All Star Perche in France Special

Clermont-ferrand - Mondo Duplantis has another major reason to be proud. He won the men's pole vault competition at the All Star Perche in Clermont-Ferrand, France.
Duplantis was able to clear 6.01 meters on his first attempt at the All Star Perche and he made it look very easy thanks to his major clearance. The 20-year-old Swedish pole vaulter also took three strong attempts at 6.19 meters for a new world record but was unsuccessful.
Last week, as Digital Journal reported, Duplantis improved his own world record with a clearance of 6.18 meters in Glasgow, Scotland.
Frenchman Renaud Lavillenie (the former world record holder in the sport) finished in second place with a jump of 5.94 meters, while American pole vaulter Sam Kendricks came in third place with 5.87 meters. They both failed all three attempts at 6.01 meters.
