STOCKHOLM (SWE): “I want to jump as high as possible, my goal is the gold,” pole vault World record holder Armand Duplantis said during a digital press conference in Sweden. Informs svt.se. ” I’m where I want to be in shape. I feel ready to drive. I always try to push the boundaries to what is possible. You do not have to be 26 or 27 years old to jump over six meters. I think it’s important that people see that you can do it at any age,” said Duplantis who also well remembers that his first World record happened last year in Torun. “It feels like coming home, Torun is a special place for me. It’s a shame I can not jump in front of the same people who were there when I broke the world record.” His main rival Renaud Lavillenie cleared 606 on Saturday in Aubiere and commented: “This is perhaps the first time that I am an outsider at this competition. But the outsider with 6.06m? That is incredible.”
