Six Tokyo Olympic contenders post Doha ( Will we see a world record break?)

Here’s our list of six athletes who can blaze through records at the 2020 Games—each of their winning marks in Doha is better than the mark that fetched gold at the Rio Olympics in 2016.

Kendricks was one of only three people to clear six metres in the pole vault this season with a 6.06 set at the USA track and field outdoor championships in Iowa, USA. But he defeated a field containing the other two, Piotr Lisek (Poland) and Armand Duplantis (Sweden), to defend the title he won in London—his clearance at Doha is better than the Olympic record, which was set in Rio.
