Air Lavillenie back to training
CLERMONT FERRAND (FRA): Pole vault World record holder Renaud Lavillenie made a painless return to pole vault training on Thursday after more than five weeks on the sidelines with a foot injury. The injury kept Lavillenie out of World Indoor Championships in Sopot, where he was favourite to defend his title. On Thursday, Lavillenie started training again with an eye on this summer’s Diamond League series of meetings and the European Athletics Championships in Zurich in August, results wise he wants to clear at least 610 cm. He made some 50 vaults, up to a height of 535, and will now likely compete at the end of April Drake Relays. Agencies are informing.
