Kendricks Retains his world championship title

The 2019 season has finally come to an end with Sam Kendricks retaining his World Champion title. Sam found himself down to his third attempt at 5.97m/19’7” and pulled out a very clutch make to retake the lead and ultimately, the gold medal, becoming only the second pole vaulter to ever win back-to-back outdoor World Championship titles. Sam finishes this season with the number 1 ranking, the highest height cleared since 2014 and the second highest outdoor mark of all-time.
