Thanks for having read this thread...
This jump was just incredible... Like Bubka did some... 6.18 or 6.19 possibly...
I'll rember this for a long time...
I'm happy for my favorite... just a bit worry for his ankle. Being back on the track from a 6.20 m pole is not a begnin thing...
Nevermind, have a good night folks !

:D Hope to enjoy with that after, depends of the results of the meeting !...
Nevermind... This show doesn't seem to be broadcasted totally in live (just from 5 pm to 7 pm local time). Probably a summary or hopefully the most interesting end of it.

To palm1234 :
Now I can go dancing ! :D

Several PV coaches had told Lavillenie to quit this sport because he was too short and would never jump high...

From Debbie Chappell:

WR UPDATE: Renauld was still signing autographs when Steve left venue. (With urging) he is getting his foot checked out afterwards - X-rays etc. Steve said his heel was bleeding a bit.

Sergey told Steve he was so happy it happened in Donetsk saying "He's a really good guy and I'm so proud to be passing the baton to Renauld..."


and her previous post:

Just so the rumor mill doesn't explode, Renauld did NOT break his foot on his further attempt at WR (as being posted in some places.) His mid-mark was off and he came down on the runway (not in the box). He has a cut but is up smiling, signing autographs etc and seems fine, but in a little bit of pain....so I'm told by eyewitness : )
