(MENAFN – Gulf Times) Pole vault six-metre club members Armand Duplantis, Sam Kendricks, Piotr Lisek and Renaud Lavillenie will return to battle at the Wanda Diamond League meeting in Doha on September 25.

Duplantis, the world record holder at 6.18m, has been unstoppable this year, unbeaten thus far in 13 competitions in 2020. In the fading light of Lausanne eight days ago, the 20-year-old topped 6.07m, best outdoor vault in the world for 26 years. It took that vault to beat Kendricks, the two-time world champion, who topped 6.02m, the second highest clearance of his career.
