Family, Childhood, and Education
Armand Duplantis’s father’s name is Greg Duplantis and her mother’s name is Helena. His two older brothers, Andreas and Antoine, and his younger sister, Johanna, also took up sports; Andreas represented Sweden as a pole vaulter at the 2009 World Youth Championships and 2012 World Junior Championships, while Antoine dropped pole vault for baseball in high school before heading to Louisiana State University where he became the team’s career hits leader in 2019.
Armand Duplantis first began pole vaulting at the age of four. He began setting records at the age of seven. He earned international recognition in 2015 when he won the World Under 18 Championships in Cali, Colombia. On 11 February 2017, at the Millrose Games, Duplantis jumped 5.75 m (18 ft 10+1⁄2 in) to set the World Indoor Junior Record. That mark was ratified by IAAF. A month later he improved to 5.82 m (19 ft 1 in) in the same facility at the New Balance National Scholastic Championships. That mark was not ratified due to incorrect peg lengths being used. On 1 April 2017, Duplantis jumped 5.90 m at the Nike Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays, improving his personal record and setting a new World Junior Record. The jump also became a Swedish senior record by 3 cm (1 in). While the IAAF recognized the record with Duplantis representing Sweden, on 2 December 2017, USATF also ratified Duplantis’ mark as the American Junior record.
Duplantis placed 2nd at the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar, clearing 5.97 m (19 ft 7 in) on his third attempt. On 4 February, Duplantis cleared 6.00 m (19 ft 8 in) indoors at his first competition of the season. He followed that up with three attempts at a new world record of 6.17 m (20 ft 3 in). On his second attempt, he cleared the bar but brushed it off with his arm on the way back down. On 8 February, Duplantis broke Renaud Lavillenie’s almost-six-year-old world record with a jump of 6.17 m (20 ft 3 in) in Toruń, Poland. A week later, on 15 February in Glasgow, he increased the record by another centimeter to 6.18 m (20 ft 3+1⁄2 in).
On 19 February, Duplantis won the Meeting Hauts de France Pas de Calais by clearing 6.07 m (19 ft 11 in), after which he made three unsuccessful attempts at the new world record height of 6.19 m (20 ft 3+1⁄2 in). A few days later, on 23 February, Duplantis won the All-Star Perche in Clermont-Ferrand by clearing 6.01 m (19 ft 8+1⁄2 in) in his last indoor competition for the season, which ended with new unsuccessful attempts at 6.19 m (20 ft 3+1⁄2 in). On 14 July, he received a scholarship from Swedish Crown Princess Victoria. On 17 September at the Rome Golden Gala Pietro Mennea Diamond League, Duplantis broke Sergey Bubka’s outdoor world best of 6.14 m (20 ft 1+1⁄2 in), with a second-attempt clearance of 6.15 m (20 ft 2 in). Note that the IAAF does not recognize the indoor and outdoor pole vault as separate events; Duplantis already holds the world record at 6.18 m (20 ft 3+1⁄2 in) from his indoor clearance in February 2020. On 1 December, he was awarded the Svenska Dagbladet Gold Medal for “the most significant Swedish sports achievement of the year”.
On 6 March, Duplantis competed at the 2021 European Indoor Championships. He was the overwhelming favourite to win the title after the late withdrawal of Renaud Lavillenie with injury. Duplantis was still tested by Piotr Lisek and Lavillenie’s younger brother Valentin, who went on to claim bronze and silver respectively — the latter with a personal best. Duplantis however set a new championship record of 6.05 m (19 ft 10 in) before making three unsuccessful attempts at 6.19 m (20 ft 3+1⁄2 in), his second narrowly missing the world record.
At the one-year delayed 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Duplantis won a gold medal when he cleared a height of 6.02 m (19 ft 9 in) on his first effort and afterward got very close to beating his own world record. Silver medalist Chris Nilsen was full of praise for the winner. He compared the competition against Duplantis that evening to be a regular footballer “trying to emulate Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo” and that his superiority over the world’s best pole vaulters was “impressive and ridiculous”. On 7 March, he beat his own world record by jumping 6.19 m (20 ft 3+1⁄2 in) at the Belgrade Indoor Meeting. Two weeks later, at the 2022 World Athletics Indoor Championships in Belgrade, he won the gold medal. At the same time, he broke his world record yet again, by jumping 6.20 m (20 ft 4 in).
