World silver medallist Mondo Duplantis narrowly missed setting a world record but still cleared a season leading 6.00 metres to win the pole vault at the World Athletics Indoor Tour meeting in Dusseldorf on Tuesday.

The American-born Swede was bidding for a world record 6.17 metres when he brushed off the bar with his arm during his second attempt at the height. Had Duplantis succeeded, he would have topped Frenchman Renaud Lavillenie’s 6.16m set in Ukraine on Feb. 15, 2014.
