- It is difficult as it is to fly with the poles and when almost all flights are canceled, there are no flights that can take them, says Duplantis.

- Maybe I should have driven instead, I have a bad conscience. But my mother would never let me sit in a car and drive for 20 hours.

Already on Sunday, it is time for the Swedish Championships at home, and then the poles must be back in Sweden. On August 23, a competition awaits in Stockholm and then four competitions in Europe.

- There will be a lot of driving. Mom has already driven all the way from Sweden here so I have a bad conscience that she has to drive more. Hopefully I will find someone else who can drive or maybe I will do it myself, he says.
