Mondo Duplantis broke his outdoor pole vault world record by one centimeter, clearing 6.16 meters (more than 20 feet, 2 inches) at a Diamond League meet in Stockholm on Thursday.

Duplantis, the Olympic gold medalist from Sweden, has broken the indoor and outdoor world records a combined six times in the last two and a half years.

Next month, Duplantis will bid to win the world outdoor title for the first time in Eugene, Oregon.

Duplantis, 22, started pole vaulting at age 3 and was raised in Louisiana by an American dad and a Swedish mom.
