It's a full schedule I like that! I wonder how his recovery is coming along? When will he be back to 100% ?

You're perfectly right, I forgot this... the "Decastar", September 20 & 21, 2014... unless that he can run the "24h du Mans" motorcycling, at the same dates... ;)

According to a recent interview :
2 weeks now before running and basic training again,
2 weeks more before jumping.
Just in time to vault with 16 steps at the end of April, I think...

Comparing my "predictable" schedule, three events less and four events more (not bad indeed... ;)) :

Will not participate in :
May 4, 2014 : 1st round of French Clubs Championships (100 m, 110 mh, LJ and PV), Aubières (?) (FRA)
May 26, 2014 : National circuit of meetings, Meeting Elite, Forbach (FRA)
August 21, 2014 : Diamond League, DN Galan, Stokholm (SWE)

But will go to :
June 17 : IAAF Meeting, Ostrava (CZE)
July 20 : Pole vault British Meets, London (GBR)
August 30 : Decanations, Angers (FRA) --> I think I'll be over there too :)
September 13-14 : Continental Cup, Marrakesh (MAR) 

So it's not 14 but 15 events !

Maybe he is showing us all something .... by jump height he is the best ever.... maybe we all should jump ( and compete ) a lot more.
Lavillenie jumps at more meets outdoor than most American Vaulters jump indoor / outdoor combined

According to Renaud's Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152099541324794) :
"Some good news from my foot.
Very good healing. My heel is still a bit sensitive but it's improving day by day. Back to training is provided during next week, depending on the progression of feelings.
This injury will soon be all behind us !
Renaud."

His 40 days break must have been long for him, now he's happy to jump again :
