Armand Duplantis soars to victory at Suzhou Diamond League, misses world record by narrow margin

Posted : 27 April 2024

At the Suzhou Diamond League meeting, Sweden's Armand 'Mondo' Duplantis showcased his dominance in the men's pole vault, clinching victory with a meet record of 6.00 meters, just shy of his own world record set a week prior in Xiamen. Despite his formidable performance, the bar raised to 6.25 meters proved insurmountable for Duplantis, who narrowly missed out on surpassing his own record.


Reflecting on his performance, Duplantis acknowledged the challenge of maintaining momentum after a record-breaking achievement, admitting to feeling a bit flat during the competition. Despite this, he remained optimistic, emphasizing the importance of ideal conditions for achieving world-record heights, which he believed were not fully met during the event in Suzhou.


In other events, world 100m champion Sha'Carri Richardson faced another setback in the women's 200m, finishing third behind Britain's Daryll Neita and the USA's Anavia Battle.


Meanwhile, South Africa's Akani Simbine emerged victorious in the men's 100 meters, with American Christian Coleman expressing satisfaction with his performance and readiness for the upcoming Olympic Games.


However, Nigeria's Tobi Amusan faced disqualification in the women's 100m hurdles, allowing Olympic champion Jasmine Camacho-Quinn to claim first place in a closely contested race.
