Of the three poles, only Piotr Lisek managed to reach the pole vault final. However, it was not without problems. The representative of our country received the award only for the third time. However, Robert Sopra and Bowie Wojciechowski withdrew.
Sam Kendricks was missing. A medal contender has tested positive for the coronavirus. Despite the absence of the American, the cast was very strong, with Renaud Lavillenie and Armand Duplantis at the helm.
Piotr Lisek easily coped with the hanging beam at a height of 5.50 m, and small problems began at 5.70 m. After the first unsuccessful attempt, the pole risked and moved the remaining two jumps to the next height.
