The Swedish Duplantis is the world record holder, the American Kendricks is multiple world champion and the French Lavillenie won gold at the 2012 Olympic Games.
They will not really be in the same place but will rather participate from France, Mississippi and Louisiana, weather permitting.
“I am delighted to be able to compete again, especially against Sam and Renaud,” Duplantis told worldathletics.org. “Since we don’t know what other competitions we will all have together, we will definitely enjoy it and have a good time with it.”
“In addition, winning is crucial because I don’t like losing too much against them.”
“It is a great opportunity to see the best jumpers in a new competition format showing their love for their sport with competition when most other sports are off,” added Lavillenie.
“And because we’re all at home, we have no excuse to miss this international home competition.”
