Duplantis' pole vault in slo-mo is a joy to behold

Armand Duplantis picked up the gold medal at the European Championships in Berlin, and this slow motion video has wowed millions of social media users.

Armand Duplantis entered the history books in the last European Championships, which were held in Berlin. Clearing a bar set at 5.95 metres was a junior world record, and he went on to join the six metre club with 6.05m, with only three others - Hooker (6.06m), Bubka (6.15m) and Lavillenie (6.16m WR) - ever having achieved this feat.

His jump in slow motion is an incredible and mesmerizing account of the skill, balance and bravery that these athletes demonstrate at the elite level of their discipline.
