My first two competitions are a it’s a little frustrating, but it’s a very small thing and easy to solve. I feel good, safe, strong, fast. I have confidence in what to do, where I am. I know I’m at a high level now,” said Duplantis , who will attack his world record.

“My goal on Thursday is to jump 6.24 meters, but first I have to take another step. First, I have to win and pass the bars below six meters, but I think it is possible, that it is within reach -my hand,” he added in Swedish.
