Pole Vault Record Nearly Goes Down In Dusseldorf *Results
Mondo Duplantis Clears 6.00m In Dusseldorf; Narrowly Misses 6.17m World Record Duplantis’ second attempt was “painfully close” to breaking Renaud Lavillenie‘s 6.16m WR as he just nudged the bar slightly with his knee on the way over and brushed it with his arm on the way down. Besides the PV, distance events highlighted the meet as Beatrice Chepkoech broke her own Kenyan national indoor 1,500m record with a 4:02.09 win over Axumawit Embaye (4:02.96). Filip Ingebrigtsen won the men’s race in 3:36.32 while Selemon Barega ran 7:35.71 to win a competitive 3,000m over Getnet Wale (7:36.03) and Bethwel Birgen (7:46.21). There was an upset in the men’s 800 where Germany’s Marc Reuther ran 1:46.13 to end Adam Kszczot‘s (1:46.42) seven straight Dusseldorf victory winning streak.
