RL didn't pass 5.94 m...
But a great event here with Marion Fiack (4.71 NR, WL) and RL (5.80, 2nd WL).
Thanks for following and don't forget we're all Charlie !

Some good slow-mo videos of Renaud Lavillenie and Marion Fiack's national record, that can be downloaded with the link in the description:

Renaud (full)

For those interested in that kind of details, it seems Renaud used a 5.20/14.3 pole at the end (the one he had to jump 6.04 and 6.08) with a 5.15 grip. His coach says he will jump 6 meters very soon (source: l'equipe).

Please upload footages from Reno next week-end!
