Watch Mondo Duplantis Break National Sophomore Class Pole Vault Record

Armand "Mondo" Duplantis broke his own National Freshman Class Record in the pole vault in nearly every competition last year. As a sophomore in 2016, the Lafayette High School, Louisiana athlete is already on track to do the same -- he cleared a new Sophomore Class National Record of 17-2.25 at the LSU High School Classic last weekend.

Duplantis is the reigning IAAF World Youth Champion and owns an outdoor best of 17-4.75.
