LAVILLENIE BACK IN TRAINING NEXT WEEK
CLERMONT-FERRAND (FRA): Pole Vault World record holder and Olympic winner Renaud Lavillenie will be back to training next week. That is good news after his injury in February in Donetsk. The flying Frenchman plans his first competition already end of April at Drake Relays in Des Moines. Informs L´Équipe.
(Editor's note: We saw Renaud in Sopot, Poland, where he was enjoying the meet, speaking to media, and enjoying some of his well deserved accolades for his historic vault. Lavillenie's agent told us that Lavillenie's foot was healing well and that he would spend much of April in the US training, before he heads to Drake Relays, his opening outdoors this season.)
