World Athletics Championships: Mondo Duplantis, the Swede who vaults to break his own world record

Pole Vaulter Mondo Duplantis is on a record-breaking spree. So far, he has broken the World Record (WR) five times, setting an unprecedented landmark in his young career.

After he began his career with the World Youth Championships in 2015, Duplantis was dubbed the successor of legendary Sergey Bubka, the first pole vaulter to jump six metres way back in 1994. Bubka’s outdoor world record of 6.14m stood for two and a half decades before Duplantis cleared 6.16 metres at the Stockholm Diamond League on June 30.
