As a result, Kendricks and Lisek took the world-leading mark away from Mondo Duplantis, who cleared 5.92 meters and set a collegiate record this past Friday.

Kendricks cleared 5.93 meters on his third attempt, and he took three tries at 6.03 meters, with no success. The American athlete finished in second place behind Polish pole vaulter Piotr Lisek, who won on countback.

Australian pole vaulter Kurtis Marschall came in third place with 5.87 meters, which is a new personal best for Marschall indoors; moreover, Polish pole vaulter Pawel Wojciechowski came in fourth place with 5.80 meters and Olympic gold medalist Thiago Braz finished in fifth place with 5.80 meters.
