Many PBs, as the conditions seemed to be perfect (sunny with constant tail wind).

Was out for a few days because of some vacances...
Very happy for Axel Chapelle's performance (saw him a few months ago, and I did expect for it).
French pole vaulters are still in for a few, and I hope It'll be an example to follow, especially for the next European Championships with Lavillenie and Menaldo.
(his last jump at 5.55m was technically pretty poor (*) but very well passed and PB following... so, good news for the future ?...)
Let's wait and see... ;)

(*) Good run (on 16 steps) and very good plant (with a free take-off) but with the same imperfection as Lavillenie : "group and extand" a bit to soon before the rotation of the pole, wich projects him to the right. But I admit this "imperfection" makes WR when it's mastered... and stiff pole for him at this moment too :)
