Record-Setting Performances at Stockholm Diamond League Meet Ahead of Paris Olympics

Posted : 03 June 2024

Femke Bol seized victory in the 400m hurdles, making a stellar outdoor debut ahead of the Paris Olympics, while Armand 'Mondo' Duplantis nearly eclipsed his own pole vault world record at the Diamond League meet in Stockholm on Sunday. Despite early pressure from Jamaica’s Rushell Clayton and Andrenette Knight, Bol maintained her composure, clinching victory with a time of 53.07 seconds, albeit falling short of Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone's world-leading time of 52.70sec set earlier.


In the men’s pole vault, the fervent home crowd rallied behind Armand 'Mondo' Duplantis, who soared to victory with a height of 6.00m. However, he tantalizingly came close to surpassing his own world record, narrowly missing at 6.25m in three attempts, a mere 1cm higher than his previous record achieved six weeks ago in the Xiamen Diamond League.


Algeria's Djamel Sedjati delivered a standout performance in the 800m, clocking a blistering time of 1min 43.23sec, the fastest of the season thus far. Jamaica’s Shericka Jackson displayed a much-improved performance in the 200m with a season’s best of 22.69m, while Laura Muir secured victory in the 1500m with a time of 3:57.99. Despite skipping the European championships in Rome, Muir remains focused on the Paris Olympics in August, aiming to peak at the right moment for the pinnacle event.


Ukraine’s Yaroslava Mahuchikh dominated the women’s high jump, clearing a height of 2.00m, and expressed determination to defend her European title in Rome. Alison Dos Santos clinched victory in the 400m hurdles with a time of 47.02sec, setting the stage for a triumphant return to training camp in Florida before her next Diamond League meet.
