Renaud wins with 5.95m at nationals in Paris, cleared it easily at first attempt after having cleared 5.80 at third.

Then in the first missed attempt at 6.05 he slightly injured his hand (hit the bar on the mat). He preferred wisely to call it a day.

His younger brother Valentin got a bronze medal at european U23 championships with 5.50. They both are qualified by the french federation to the worlds in Moscou !

They must be the best brother combination since the Bubkas!
