Baton Rouge, La. – Freshman pole vaulter Mondo Duplantis was named the 2018 Men’s European Co-Rising Star on Friday. The world-renowned pole vaulter was a joint honoree alongside Jakob Ingebrigtsen of Norway.

The best Swedish pole vaulter of all time, Duplantis cleared eight world U20 records in 2018 and he set a championship record and career best of 6.05 meters (19-10.25) at the European Championships to claim the gold medal whilst setting a meet record.

The mark of 6.05 meters is the second best outdoor pole vault in world history.
