Swedish track and field athlete Armand Duplantis has set a new world record in pole vaulting.

In the final of the Diamond League 2023, he overcame the bar at a height of 6.23 meters.

Thus, the 23-year-old Swede broke the previous world record of 6.22 meters, set by him in February 2023 at the World Tour competition in France.

Duplantis updated the world record in pole vaulting for the seventh time in his career. The Swede now owns eight of the nine best pole vaults in history.

After setting a new world record, Duplantis shared his emotions, noting that he felt the support of his family who came to the United States for the competition.

"Now, to be honest, there are not so many thoughts, I just have chaos in my brain. It's hard to explain, but it's a great feeling. Almost my entire family was here, so I have nothing to complain about. Every time I set a world record, it feels like a new thing. This time it's a very special moment because my two brothers are here and they are a big reason why I'm here today and I'm jumping so well," the Swede was quoted as saying by SVT Sport.

Duplantis is the Olympic champion of Tokyo 2020. He also has two gold medals at the World and European Championships, victories in the Diamond League finals in 2021, 2022 and 2023.
