Also, Sopot's qualifying mark for Kevin Menaldo, second with 5.75.

He is a former silver medallist from European junior championships, same build as Lavillenie.

The coach of Kevin Menaldo is Thierry Vigneron, yes, the guy who used to smoke in the stadium between two jumps (and let's be fair, who has got several times the world record).

Edit: Canag is correct, Vigneron has been the coach of Menaldo, but no longer.

I think his coach is now Gerald Baudoin, at INSEP.

Is Jade Vigneron (NH), listed just above Lavellinie's result any relation to Thierry Vigneron? Is he still jumping at all? Just wondered.

Yes Jade is the daughter of Thierry Vigneron.
