American pole vaulter Chris Nilsen finished in second place with a personal best of 5.97 meters, while Thiago Braz claimed the bronze medal for Brazil with 5.87 meters, a season-best score.

“Olympic champion #borntofly,” Duplantis exclaimed a post on social media, and rightfully so.

Congratulations to Mondo Duplantis on this tremendous accomplishment. He holds the world records in the indoor (6.18 meters) and outdoor (6.15 meters) track and field for the men’s pole vault.
