RunBlogRun opines: Jimmy Vicaut is a very talented sprinter. Last summer, I watched him run the 100m and 200m at the French Elite Champs in Lille. Vicaut is deceptively fast. His movement is ordered, and precise. His 2016 is coming along just fine.
MONTREUIL (FRA): Jimmy Vicaut admits he was surprised to equal the European 100m record of 9.86 in Montreuil on Tuesday, informs L’Equipe. “I was not thinking about it at all, I was just thinking to run well. I cannot tell you what I thought about my race. I must continue to work on my goal which is the Olympics,” he said. On comparing his race to his season’s opener in Rome where he clocked 9.99, Vicaut said: “In Rome, I make two small mistakes: I got up too quickly and in the final part, I begin to tip backwards.”
