Lavillenie vaults over rugby crossbar!
October 14, 2010Posted by on
In one particular IAAF interview, pole vault champion Steve Hooker referred to his French arch rival Renaud Lavillenie as someone who “has a touch of madness about him.” According to Hooker, “I find his way of jumping a bit crazy.”
In order to promote the sport of athletics, Lavillenie lived up to his “daredevil” billing by vaulting over a rugby crossbar (3.05m high) during the halftime break of an actual French league rugby game – without a planting box and a landing mat!
