An official from Mt. Sac was told that Lavillenie may compete this coming Saturday at the Mt. Sac Relays. Any truth in what he heard?

At the press conference yesterday Renaud said :

“I have no idea (about limit to how high vaulters could go). No one was thinking the World record could be beaten in 2014. Some scientists think that 6.19m is a limit, but we saw video of Bubka in which he was 20-25 centimetres clear of the bar on a six metre jump.
Everybody wants to go higher. Sometimes it takes a long time, but someone is always going to jump higher.
I will be on 16 (steps, here in Shangai), usually, it’s 20.
It is early in the year and (16 steps) is better for me. It will ensure that I am not tired as I go through the season.
My main goal in Shanghai is to win. If it takes 5.80 to do that, I will be happy.
My goal is to do what I can. I jumped 5.95 or better (with an outdoor best of 6.02m among them) seven times last year. My goal this year is to jump six metres as often as possible."
