Renaud Lavillenie is the best vaulter in the world.
He is looking at even higher heights.
That is why he comes in at 5.75m or so.
When he misses at 5.85m or 5.92m, some people sigh, but Lavillenie is reaching for the stars.
He loves Monaco.
“It has never rained here in my competitions.” noted the King of the Pole Vault.
Renaud Lavillenie is a risk taker, a gambler. He sees the pole vault as an extension of how he lives his life with honesty and vigor.
In this interview, Renaud Lavillenie took some questions and spoke eloquently in French and English on the event he loves.
And the medal that eludes him, so far, the World Championships.
