Puff, puff.   Mr. D. runs fast with a long pole.  He plants the pole on the ground.  He lifts his body over a bar.

Mr. D. went more than 20 feet up in the air!

Pray: Thank God for the skill He gives athletes. We can run and jump because He made our bodies strong.

Stack a basketball goal on top of another. That’s 20 feet. Add 5 1/4 inches. That is how high Sweden’s Armand “Mondo” Duplantis pole vaulted over a bar. The almost-24-year-old set a new world record in September in Eugene, Oregon. He brushed the bar with his body when he sailed over. Pole vaulters earn a foul if the bar falls. Mr. Duplantis had many family members at the competition. He says, “Those are the people I want to make the most proud.”

“By my God I can leap over a wall.” (Psalm 18:29)
