article imageReview: Shawn Barber jumps 5.92 meters in pole vault at Texas Relays Special

By Markos Papadatos     Apr 1, 2018 in Sports
Canadian pole vaulter Shawn Barber has a major reason to be proud. He was able to clear 5.92 meters at the 2018 Texas Relays that took place yesterday.
Barber accomplished this pole vault clearance on his first attempt at 5.92 meters, and in the end, he was tied with Frenchman Renaud Lavillenie (and world record holder) for first place. As a result, Barber scored a major comeback from the 2018 Indoor World Championships that were held in Birmingham, England, and the Canadian pole vaulter proves that he is still at the top of his game.
As Digital Journal previously reported, teenage pole vaulter Mondo Duplantis also cleared 5.92 meters on his third and final attempt, which was a new world junior record.
