Armand "Mondo" Duplantis age?

Unread postby PV2020 » Mon Jul 28, 2014 9:03 am

I saw where he won the USATF Junior Olympic pole vault for the 15-16 year old age group. However, I thought he was only 14. Most 15-16 year olds are in high school, and he does not have any high school results for this year. Does anyone know how old he is or why he would be vaulting in an age group higher than he is supposed to?

Not sure of his age but I'm pretty sure that JOs (USATF) goes by birth year (not age at time of competition).

I saw Mondo jump, he looked pretty good. I heard he just turned 15...looks like he will have a bright future dominating USATFJO next yer in 15-16 boys.

I saw where he has done a few other events this year. LJ, TJ, Hurdles, Sprints.. That kind of stuff. What are his new PRs in that kind of stuff?

I will take Duppawpaw's age of Mondo over your rumor, since Duppawpaw is his granpawpaw. :)
