Here, he sets the world record again!

6.18 metres.

So high, it managed the Swedish stangsspringsfænomen Armand Duplantis to jump at the indoor championships in Glasgow, Scotland.

Thus manages the only 20-year-old swede for the second time in just a week to set the world record in the discipline. He scooped thus breaking the record of 6.17 metres in the last week in Polish Torun, but under a week later got Duplantis therefore the meter to record a centimeter more.

There was even plenty of air between the swede and the crossbar, so it was clear to see that there is more in store for the new, big stangsprings-name.

The 20-year-old swede with the not-so-Swedish-sounding name has grown up in the UNITED states, but does so up to our neighbours ' blue/yellow-flag, and he has, of course, already ignited a tremendously large olympic guldhåb in the nation, when it goes loose at the OLYMPICS in Tokyo for the summer.

Armand Duplantis is Sweden's first verdensrekordholder in athletics, since Patrik Bodén had the world record in the javelin throw for three months in 1990.

At last year's WORLD championships in Doha won the Armand Duplantis silver. He is also the defending european champion in pole vault.
