Ben Broeders jumps 5.81 metres to improve on his Belgian pole vault record

A new Belgian men’s pole vault record was set during Saturday evening’s Pole Vault Gala in the Flemish Brabant city of Leuven. Ben Broeders showed that he still very much has it in him after his disappointing performance at the Olympics in Tokyo. In the pouring rain he broke his own Belgian record and cleared 5.81 meters. You can watch him do so by clicking on the video above.
