Duplantis struggling with motivation
LAFAYETTE (USA): Pole Vault World record holder Armand Duplantis has admitted he is struggling to stay motivated with the summer season threatened by the spread of the coronavirus, informs SVT. “It’s hard now. There are many mornings now that I wake up and have difficulty motivating myself. What am I fighting for? What do I try to achieve with my training? Do I fight for competitions, what kind of competitions? I don’t know if there will be any competitions at all. But, I try to plan for success and that everything will work out, although it may not be so,” he said. Duplantis also revealed for Expressen with Lavillenie and Kendricks they are planning home competitions.
