RL is competiting, of course (for a 11th national tittle)
Kevin Medaldo is out because of a pb of ischio.
During the warm-up, RL did a "salto" above the rubber at 5.40m... :P

RL used very stiff poles during warm-up (according to Jean Galfione).

Valentin Lavillenie huge gap over 5.35m.. Good news for him who was injured.
Mathieu Collet (son of Philippe of the same name) at 5.35 m easy too.

Valentin Lavillenie is out. Seems to be injured. Fell on the back of the head. Needed a wheelchair to go out... Hope it's not too bad... :confused:

So 2 jumps at 5,77 and 5,93, then 3 failures at 6.03

According to Pierre-Jean Vazel, this was his 50th jump at 5,90 or higher
