RunBlogRun Global Athlete of Month, January 2014: Renaud Lavillenie! from the Shoe Addicts, note by Larry Eder
Renaud Lavillenie is our first Global Athlete of the Month for RunBlogRun. His 6.04 meter jump and then, 6.08 meter jump were merely previews of his new World Record of 6.16m done on February 15, 2014 in Donetsk. That it was done in the presence of Pole Vault giant Sergey Bubka, whose record Lavillenie broke, makes the moments event more spectacular!
Congrats to Renaud Lavillenie, who has put the pole vault into the forefront of our sport! Special thanks to the Shoe Addicts, our digital partner, for this video salute.
