Thiago vs Renaud rematch
CLERMONT-FERRAND (FRA): Olympic rematches will be on show at the All-Star Perche in Clermont-Ferrand on Sunday. Rio gold and silver medallists Ekaterini Stefanidi and Sandi Morris are the top names in the women’s pole vault while Thiago Braz and Renaud Lavillenie headline the men’s event. The men’s line-up also features world champion Shawn Barber, former world champions Raphael Holzdeppe and Pawel Wojciechowski and former world indoor champion Konstadinos Filippidis. Lavillenie cleared 6.02m at his home meet last year.
RunBogRun opines: The vital part of our sport is competition. I love events like the pole vault and high jump special competitions, because they just come down to the the challenge between the finest of athletes.
