Hopefully part of your Memorial day plans include Saturday's @nikepreclassic

If he can replicate that performance in Eugene, he’ll have a shot at victory, but the Pre Classic will be the biggest test of his life by far. Duplantis did manage to beat Canada’s Shawn Barber , the reigning World champ, at the Texas Relays, but in Eugene he’ll face four of the top five from last year’s Olympics, including all three medallists: Thiago Braz of Brazil, Renaud Lavillenie of France and Sam Kendricks of the U.S. Lavillenie has dominated the Diamond League since its inception in 2010 — he’s the only man or woman to win the season-long Diamond Race all seven years — but he was hurt over the winter and finished second to Kendricks in first DL vault of the year in Shanghai two weeks ago. Lavillenie cleared 5.83 in that meet, with Kendricks going one bar higher to 5.88, so Duplantis will have to be at his best to have a chance.
