Duplantis sets world-leading outdoor mark of 6.12 meters at Golden Spike

Prague, June 27 (BNA): Swedish pole vaulter Armand Duplantis cleared the world’s best 6.12m outdoors at the Golden Spike meet on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old world record holder improved his previous outdoor best of 6.11 this season in Hengelo, Netherlands, earlier this month, according to the Associated Press.

Duplantis cleared a 6.12 on his first attempt before failing to clear a 6.17. The American-born Duplantis, competing for Sweden, set a world record of 6.22 in a closed meet in Clermont-Ferrand, France, on February 25.

Another world record holder, American shot putter Ryan Crozier, dominated the competition with a throw of 22.63m to improve his Golden Spike record.

Olympic champion Jasmine Camacho Quinn of Puerto Rico won the women’s 100 hurdles in 12.42 seconds to remain undefeated this year.

South African Akane Sembene was also fastest in the men’s 100, finishing 9.98 to beat European 60m indoor champion Samuele Ciccarelli of Italy who scored 10.15. In the men’s 200, South African Luxolo Adams won in 20.22 seconds.
