The current record in pole vault belongs to the Swedish athlete Armand Duplantis (born 1999). This jumper broke the world record in both categories: in the open stadium – 6.15 m (won on September 17, 2020 in Rome) and in the hall – 6.18 m (Glasgow, February 15, 2020). The latter record is also an absolute world record. The previous result belonged to Frenchman Renaud Lavillenie and was 6.16 m (Donetsk, February 15, 2014). Among women, the highest jump in history was Yelena Isinbayeva: 5.06 m (Zurich, August 28, 2009).
