• Lavillenie opens indoor campaign with a 5.80m clearance in Bordeaux

It is almost two years since Renaud Lavillenie last won a major gold medal but the defence of the one crown he now wears could be in the making.

Competing in front of a home crowd in Bordeaux, Lavillenie showed how class remains permanent with a brilliant performance in his first pole vault competition of the year, winning with a European leading clearance of 5.80m - the 148th time Lavillenie has cleared 5.80m or higher in his venerable career.
