Swede soars again to pole vault recordSports | AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE 17 Feb 2020
Sweden's Armand Duplantis set a world pole vault record of 6.18 meters at an indoor meeting in Glasgow, taking a centimeter off the record he set in Poland last week.
Duplantis, who won silver at last year's world championships, cleared the bar easily, which earned him a bonus of US$30,000 (HK$233,400). The record of 6.16m set by France's Renaud Lavillenie had stood since 2014 until Duplantis broke it in Poland. "I feel good - fast and strong," Duplantis said.
