Mondo Duplantis

Olympic Gold

*Current World Record Holder

Perhaps Europe's most beloved athlete of the current era, the electric and charismatic Mondo makes his LA debut, reaching for his 7th World Record breaking performance.  Mondo will likely be strongly challenged by Olympic Silver medalist Chris Nilsen and Bronze medalist Sam Kendricks.  Best of all, the Drake pole vault pit is the closest to the stands in any stadium in the World.
