When was the last time that a six meter jump in the men’s pole vault came in second place? It happened on August 12 at the 2018 European Championships.
Russian pole vaulter Timur Morgunov jumped 6.00 meters in the men’s pole vault final at the European Championships in Berlin, Germany, which earned him the silver medal. This was a new personal best for the 21-year-old athlete. He cleared the following heights on his first attempt: 5.50 meters, 5.65 meters, 5.75 meters, 5.85 meters and 5.90 meters. After one failed attempt at 5.95 meters, Morgunov raised the bar to six meters, which he cleared on his first attempt. Morgunov’s clearance of that difficult height was quite exceptional.
