The competition has increased and is highly motivating to jump higher and higher!
This season Renaud Lavillenie has won everything except the pole vault world title – maybe will that change in Moscow (10-18 August)? He leads balances with 2 results over 5.90 m (5.95m best performance this season). “It looks like it’s going to be a good season”, said Renaud, 1.77m and 60kg, this afternoon during the press conference. “During training, I take more time working on explosiveness and less on work quantity. This should allow me to gain strength. The competition has increased and is highly motivating. In such a contest, you cannot let the pressure go down. This competition is motivating, it brings positive vibes by making us stay at our top shape, any time, everywhere.”
Tomorrow the French vaulter, Olympic Champion in 2012 (London), will have to jump higher than his German opponents Otto and Holzdeppe. Will there be a 6m jump? “This height is not an obsession, but it would be a bonus before the World Championships in Moscow”.
