Swedish and world indoor and outdoor record holder pole vaulter Armand ‘Mondo’ Duplantis completed a perfect season when he beat the world champion, Sam Kendricks, at the Doha Diamond League meeting on Friday, September 25, 2020, the last of a campaign shortened by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 20-year-old won all 16 of his meetings in 2020 as well as twice breaking the world record and producing the best-ever outdoor jump of 6.15 metres.

A first-time clearance at 5.71m gave him a slight edge over arch-rivals American Kendricks and France’s former Olympic champion Renaud Lavillenie. The three men skipped 5.77m and went straight to 5.82m, which Duplantis cleared on his first try, while Kendricks and Lavillenie needed three attempts. It meant the trio equalled the meeting record that had been set by Konstantinos Filippidis back in 2013.
