Karalis Books Ticket to World Champs With Record Pole Vault


Greek athlete Emmanouil Karalis broke the world record in the teen pole vault by “flying” over 5.78-meter (18.96 feet) in the second day of the Pan-Hellenic Teen Track Championship on Sunday.
The previous record was held by Swedish-American pole vaulter Arman Duplantis who managed 5.75m a year ago.
Karalis, a 19-year-old Greek champion, has improved the Pan-Hellenic record for teens twice: in his jump at 5.71m he broke the record in closed track and with his 5.78m effort he set the absolute record.
His performance also won him a spot in this year’s great winter event for athletes, the World Athletics Championships in Birmingham.
Two more Greek athletes booked their tickets for the same event on Sunday: Kostas Douvalidis, who finished at 7.69 in the 60m hurdles and Elisavet Pesiridou who clocked 8.11 in the same event.
