Renaud Lavillenie flew to the United States on Monday for a two-week internship under the sun of Chila Vista (California). If all goes well, the former pole vault world record holder could take part in a meeting in Los Angeles on May 27.
“For the 27th, I am hired and I will see after ten days of training how it goes, he said. But whatever happens, I don’t expect to put on a crazy performance. I just spent two weeks where everything is falling into place. I redo pole sessions, sprint sessions, I no longer feel pain. I will now be able to increase the intensity of the sessions. »
Renaud Lavillenie had skipped the winter season to properly treat an injury to the insertion of the hamstring tendon. After Los Angeles, Lavillenie has planned to participate in the Oslo meeting on June 15, the organizers of Charléty (June 9) not having scheduled a men’s pole vault competition.
