MONACO (MON): Pole vault World record holder Renaud Lavillenie said: "One thing I haven't won is the World Championships, so that still carries me forward. I have an opportunity next year. But then if I win one I want to win two, and if I won two I want three. I have three European titles and I now want four. I want my trophy cabinet at home to be the biggest one of all. To do this would be so difficult if I didn't love the sport. I am so lucky to have found a sport that I love and this is the core of my motivation." He plans full indoor season next year.
(Editor's note: Renaud Lavillenie may be one of the most daredevil athletes in our sport. An accomplished motorcycle racer, a decathlete, a pole vaulter , Lavillenie is competitive and wants to achieve. All the things needed to be a great athlete and fine pole vaulter.
Renaud is one of the candidates for the World Athlete of the Year for 2014).
