Results of French championchips... another 6 meters + for RL

Unread postby Wan » Sun Feb 22, 2015 3:55 pm

Here there are :
1. Renaud Lavillenie, 6.01m (5.72 xo, 5.94 o, 6.01 xo, 6.18 xxx ; he beat the "AR" record of Clemont-Ferrand which Bubka owned since 25 years...)
2. Kevin Menaldo, 5.66 m (SB)
3. Valentin Lavillenie, 5.66 m

4th time 6 meters + for RL in one season, even SB did not...

At least, for advance technicians on this forum, just look at his vaults at 6.01 (the 2nd one passed) and 6.18 (the 2nd one failed)... A new WR is not that far away...

P.S. : he took for the first time a 5.20m/13.6 pole for his last two attempts at 6.18 m

Impressive height for 5.94 and 6.01 clearances!
The view angle is interesting to observe the take off and how fast the pole moves forward.

Malmö stadium record is 6.10, so he'll eventually try 6.11 on Wednesday...
