Chatting with Mondo Duplantis: World Male Athlete of the Year

This year, Duplantis smashed three world records in the pole vault (two indoors and one outdoors). “That felt really great,” he said. “Since they postponed the Olympics and the European Championships, basically, my own goal for the outdoor season was to break the 6.15 meter mark. I had my goals set on that. I wanted to be the highest vaulter outdoors since I already had the highest vaults indoors. I wanted to surpass Sergey Bubka and all that. It was really cool once I accomplished that.”

“Confidence is a huge thing in pole vaulting,” he added. “When you are able to show yourself that you are able to do something or get close to it, you just know that it really gives you confidence going into that next meet or that next week. In pole vault, you can control your own destiny.”
