WORLD RECORD ALERT: Armand Duplantis soars to new pole vault mark

Armand Duplantis broke his own world record in the pole vault on Monday, clearing 6.19m at his third attempt at the indoor meeting in Belgrade.

The 22-year-old Swedish Olympic champion had held the record since February 2020, when he cleared 6.17m in Torun in Poland and then 6.18m in Glasgow a week apart.

In pole vault, the world record can be set indoors or outdoors.
