WCH Budapest 23 preview: pole vault Men and Women

Katie Moon has been the dominant force in the women’s pole vault for a third successive outdoor season. The Olympic champion in Tokyo and the world champion on home soil in Oregon last year, the 32-year-old US vaulter has notched victories on the Diamond League circuit in Doha, Florence and Lausanne and heads the 2023 world outdoor list with the 4.90m clearance that earned her a first US outdoor title on a happy return to Hayward Field on 9 July.

Twelve months ago Mondo Duplantis was on top of the world in the metaphorical as well as the literal sense as he headed to the World Athletics Championships in Oregon.
