Mondo Duplantis has a major reason to celebrate. He broke his own world record again in the men’s pole vault, this time in Belgrade. Digital Journal has the recap.

Sweden’s Armand Duplantis set a new indoor pole vault world record of 6.19 meters at the Belgrade Indoor meeting.

Duplantis, who won the gold medal at the Tokyo Summer Olympic Games, has had his eye on this world record and finally broke it in Belgrade. On his third attempt at the height, he cleared 6.19 meters, which is a jump well over 20 feet.

The 22-year-old won his first senior European title in Berlin in 2018, before claiming silver at the World Championships in Doha a year later. He went on to win gold at the European Indoor Championships in Torun in 2021, and will now be focusing on this year’s World Championships and European Championships
