fter eclipsing ‘mythological’ pole vault king Bubka, Duplantis eyes Tokyo gold

Swedish pole vaulter Armand Duplantis said his desire to better Sergey Bubka’s outdoor mark kept him motivated in the 2020 season and after clearing 6.15m to eclipse the Ukrainian great in September, the 21-year-old is aiming to go higher next year.

Duplantis, a world silver medallist in Doha last year, set the world record by clearing 6.17m indoors in Poland in February and bettered that by a centimetre in Glasgow the same month.
