Sweden’s Armand Duplantis – who broke Sergey Bubka’s 26-year outdoor pole vault world record – has been named as one of the five finalists for the Male World Athlete of the Year 2020 award.

Duplantis made history at September’s Diamond League meeting in Rome when he cleared 6.15 metres.

It bettered Bubka’s long-held record of 6.14m which the Ukrainian set in July 1994.
