Baton Rouge, La.  – World record-holder Armand Duplantis will open his 2021 outdoor season at the LSU Alumni Gold meeting at Bernie Moore Track Stadium on Saturday and you can follow the live results and updates on your selected devices. The organizers have announced that track and field fans will be allowed to attend the meet this weekend but will be limited to 2,800 and COVID-19 protocols must continue to be followed.

Duplantis, who recently won the European Indoor Championships in Turin, will enter the men’s pole vault competition at his former institution with the hope of making a productive start to the campaign. The men’s pole vault event is slated to begin at 3:45 p.m. ET and it will consist of 17 athletes.

When he steps on the runway on Saturday, Duplantis will be making his first appearance at LSU since April of 2019 when the Swede set the facility record of 5.94m. The 21-year-old former Tigers star won the 2019 NCAA indoor title and continues to own the outdoor collegiate record at 6.00m.
