Duplantis 6.05m personal best broke his own World junior record and European Championships record and 2018 World lead.
“I do not think that there are any words in this world to describe what I feel. I am on the top of the world, so happy. I had to switch poles at the higher heights for the ones I have never used before. After I jumped six metres, I just knew I needed to go higher to solve it. It was crazy,” said Duplantis.
Bar heights between 5.85 and 6.05m the18-Year-Old Sweed cleared on his first attempt.
"He is not yet 20, he is a good friend and what he did today was just amazing." Said three-time European outdoor champion Renaud Lavillenie who settled in third place with a season's best of 5.95m.
The silver medal with a huge personal best of 6.00m took Russia's Timur Morgunov.
Last month in Tampere, Duplantis won World Junior title in a new CR of 5.88m, while last year in Nairobi he won World youth title.
