Article source: Watch Athletics


Armand Duplantis will attempt another pole vault World record on Sunday at the annual All Star Perche meeting in Clermont-Ferrand, France.

The 20-year-old Swedish star opened his indoor season with a win in Dusseldorf with 6.00m. A week later, Duplantis improved Renaud Lavillenie’s world record by 1 cm with 6.17m in Torun and added a centimetre by clearing 6.18m in Glasgow on February 15.

On Wednesday “Mondo” Duplantis cleared 6.07m effortlessly at the Meeting Hauts de-France Pas de Calais in Lievin before coming close to breaking his world record at 6.19m in his second attempt.

“Here, I am flat but I think by Sunday I will have regained my energy,” Duplantis told L’Equipe after Lievin. “The All Star Perche, it is a great name for a competition, it is a great place to jump. I am not promising anything but I advise you to watch!”

In All Star Perche meeting Duplantis will face reigning World champion Sam Kendricks and former World receord holder Renaud Lavillenie.

The evet will be streamed live on RMC 2 and France 3 Auvergne. See live stream info here.
