article imageReview: Timur Morgunov's exceptional year in the men's pole vault Special

By Markos Papadatos     Sep 15, 2018 in Sports
2018 was a phenomenal year for Russian athlete Timur Morgunov, who is 21 years old, in the men's pole vault. Digital Journal has the scoop.
At the 2018 European Championships in Berlin, Morgunov won the silver medal while setting a new personal best of six meters, which he cleared on his first attempt. This was the second best outdoor performance in the men's pole vault this outdoor season, behind Swedish pole vaulter Mondo Duplantis (6.05 meters).
On August 29, as Digital Journal reported, Morgunov won the men's pole vault competition in Zurich, and he was the winner of the IAAF Diamond League final meeting in Brussels, where he was declared "2018 Diamond League Champion," besting such athletes as U.S. pole vaulter Sam Kendricks, world record holder Renaud Lavillenie and Canadian pole vaulter Shawn Barber.
Hopefully, there will be more top-notch pole vault performances to come from Timur Morgunov in the following indoor and outdoor season in 2019. Morgunov certainly established himself as a true force to be reckoned with in track and field, and he is still young and capable of clearing higher heights.
