Pole Vault Men: Alberto Early in the Triumph of Duplantis
Armand Duplantis defended the European title he won four years ago in Berlin. When Germany’s Bo Kanda Lita Baehre, cheered by the crowd, who surprisingly took the silver, jumped to 5.95m, the Swede’s victory was certain. Then he jumped with a height of 6.06 meters, which increased his previous record at the European Championships by one centimeter. Due to the cold conditions, he decided not to try to set a world record.
And bronze went to Norway’s Pal Haugen Lillefosse (5.75m). Rano Lavillenie (France) is a gambler. The previous world record holder crossed 5.75 m, but broke three times at 5.85 m.
The Swiss Dominic Alberto, who jumped 5.65 m in qualifying, failed three times at the start with a height of 5.50 m. “This high entry was a challenge for me,” the 30-year-old admitted. “Some of the jumps were high enough, but they didn’t have enough depth.”
