Duplantis think pretty high
UPPSALA (SWE): “It’s exciting. We’re talking about my first own competition, and I wanted all the best pole vaulters in place. Now we have it, it’s big for me,” says Mondo Duplantis to SVT Sport before Wednesday´s pole vault show. “I always have a lot of pressure on me, I do not think so much about the other competitors. If I do what I usually do, it’s going to be okay. I always want to try to break world records, and it feels like I’m in good shape. The indoor season is important for pole vaulters, it is a little easier to jump high, there is no bad weather or wind. So there’s always a better chance I’m jumping pretty high indoors,” he adds. “It’s a little tougher to jump 6.19, everything has to be almost perfect, but maybe tomorrow, we’ll see.” From SVT Sport.
