Mondo Duplantis Jumps 6.24m Pole Vault World Record at 2024 Xiamen Diamond League

It did not take long for Duplantis to break his first world record of 2024

Mondo Duplantis started the 2024 Diamond League season the same way he ended the 2023 Diamond League season: with a world record. Seven months ago in Eugene, the 24-year-old Swede cleared 6.23 meters to win at the Prefontaine Classic. On Saturday in Xiamen, China, Duplantis, who won the World Indoor title in March, added another centimeter to his record by clearing 6.24 meters.

Duplantis was in midseason form, clearing all four bars he attempted on the first attempt: 5.62, 5.82, 6.00, and 6.24. And he had room to spare on his final clearance, with the broadcast showing Duplantis had a five-centimeter gap between his body and the bar.

It was the eighth time Duplantis had set the world record. He first broke it indoors in February 2020 in Torun and has added a centimeter with each subsequent record.
