Vicaut 10.02 European Leader

TOURCOING (FRA, May 24): Jimmy Vicaut's European lead of 10.02 (-0.7) highlighted the action at the French Interclubs meet. Christophe Lemaitre finished second in 10.23. Lemaitre also had to settle for second in the 200m, which was held earlier in the programme.  He ran 21.11 (1.8) and was beaten by Guy-Elphège Anouman's 20.89. Ìn the long jump, Kafétien Gomis jumped 797. Mickael Hanany beat Abdoulaye Diarra in the high jump, both jumped 225. Valentin Lavillenie went highest in the pole vault, clearing 560 to beat Baptiste Boirie (550) and Kevin Menaldo (540). There were good marks over 400mH. The men's race was won by Tunisian Mohamed Seghaier in 50.20, with Belgium's Michael Bultheel second in 50.29. In the women's race, Lamiae Lhabz of Morocco won in 57.00. In the 3000mW, Katarzyna Golba won with 12:48.72.

Editor's note: Vicaut is a talented young French sprinter, who seems to have quite delicate legs and feet. His superb early season running is quite impressive as he and Lemaitre dueled over the 100 meters. Nice to see Guy-Elphege Anouman running so well. Lemaitre had a decent double, just not wins, as many have come to expect out of him. 

Watch Lemaitre at Rome.
