Review: Piotr Lisek improves personal best to 6.02 meters in Monaco (Includes first-hand account)

Lisek was able to clear 6.02 meters on his first attempt in the men’s pole vault, which is a new personal best, meeting record and world-leading mark; moreover, this is a new national record for Poland. Lisek subsequently tried three solid attempts at 6.06 meters with no further success.

Particularly impressive about this meet in Monaco was that Lisek was able to clear every height on his first attempt (5.52 meters, 5.72 meters, 5.82 meters, 5.87 meters, 5.92 meters, 5.97 meters and of course, 6.02 meters).

All soon as he cleared 6.02 meters, many of his fellow athletes went to the mat and congratulated him, including 2019 European indoor champion Pawel Wojciechowski, reigning world champion Sam Kendricks, world record holder Renaud Lavillenie, and German pole vaulter Raphael Holzdeppe.

Last week, as Digital Journal reported, Lisek won the IAAF Diamond League in Lausanne with a clearance of 6.01 meters.
