Stecchi and Lavillenie in a tie
NEVERS (FRA, Jan 19): There was a tie for the first place at the 2nd leg of Perche Elite Tour here. World record holder Renaud Lavillenie and Italian Claudio Michel Stecchi both cleared 570 in third attempt. For the Italian an overall PB. Then he tried at 575 and Lavillenie passed but was not succesful at 580. But he only tried twice as he felt his right tibia like in Tignes and as a matter of precaution stopped. He will see the doctor on Monday. Third Axel Chapelle, fourth Didac Salas of Spain and fifth Mathieu Collet all cleared 552. Swiss Angelica Moser won women with 440.
