The Venezuelan Yulimar Rojas, the Swedish Armand Duplantis and the American Grant Holloway, offered this Sunday a festival of world records on the closing day of the Indoor World Championships, which were held for three days at the Stark Arena in Belgrade.
Yulimar Rojas wrote, at the age of 26, a new page in the history of athletics with her third indoor triple jump title, an unprecedented feat, and a new world record that brings her a little closer to her goal of becoming the first woman to exceed 16 meters.
In his first jump, technically imperfect, he sentenced the contest with 15.19. He already had the gold. From there he had to risk in search of a new record, which he made him wait until the last attempt. He asked the public for claps, was encouraged with his characteristic shouts at the head of the track, headed down the corridor and landed 15.74 meters from the table.
Duplantis in the pole vault, added a new title to his collection with a jump of 6.20m, a new world record, in a final that had the same podium as in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, although this time the silver It was for the Brazilian Thiago Braz (5.95) and the bronze for the American Christopher Nilsen (5.90).
He needed to exhaust all three attempts, but Duplantis was finally able to give the public a new world record, the second in thirteen days and on the same track.
In the 60 hurdles, Grant Holloway won the title with a time of 7.39, two hours after having equaled his world record of 7.29 in the semifinals, while the Spanish Asier Martínez stayed four hundredths of the bronze.
