Armand Duplantis remains the king of the skies

Armand Duplantis remains the king of the skies
Armand Duplantis jumped 6.10 meters.

He came, saw and flew: Armand Duplantis crowned himself pole vault world champion for the second time. The Swede, who is currently the best-paid track and field athlete, fascinated the sold-out stadium at the World Championships in Budapest, jumped 6.10 meters and then set the world record height of 6.23. The 23-year-old tore it three times, but the audience paid homage to his air show. “The sky is Armand’s limit. He is the defining face of our sport,” said World Association President Sebastian Coe about Duplantis, who has the most jumps over six meters.

Noah Lyles also lived up to his own expectations. The US sprinter, who announced after his 100-meter victory that he would leave Budapest with three gold medals, kept his word. After he had already won the 200 meters in 19.52 seconds on Friday, he won the 4×100 meter relay on Saturday with Christian Coleman, Fred Kerley and Brandon Carnes in a world record time of 37.38.

Canadian decathlete Pierce LePage (8909 points) was crowned king of track and field athletes ahead of his compatriot Damian Warner (8804).

World Championship debutant Julia Mayer (2:41:54 hours) finished 50th in the marathon, which was won by Ethiopian Amane Beriso Shankule (2:24:23).
