Renaud Lavillenie Wiki and Biography: Renaud Lavillenie was born on September 18, 1986 (age 29) in Barbezieux-Saint-Hilaire, France. Lavillenie’s younger brother Valentin Lavillenie is also a pole vaulter. His father was a pole vaulter. Renaud made his pole vault competition debut in 2003, at the age of 17. Outside pole vaulting, Lavillenie is a keen motorcyclist, and raced in the 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours for motorcycles, finishing 25th. Lavillenie subsequently entered the 2014 race, aiming for a top 20 finish.

In Rio Olympics 2016: According to Wikipedia, Lavillenie was the favorite to win the Olympic gold in pole vaulting, but a strong performance from the host country’s Thiago Braz da Silva left him with the silver medal. Lavillenie cleared 5.93m with his third effort at the finals. This meant that each of the five other competing athletes had to equal or beat their personal best to stay in the competition. Only da Silva managed to do so. Lavillenie managed to clear the next height, 5.98m, easily with his first attempt, but da Silva decided to skip 5.98m and went on to 6.03m. With a successful second attempt at 6.03m, da Silva set a new Olympic Record. Lavillenie, having failed his first two attempts at 6.03m, attempted 6.08 with his final jump but failed, knocking the bar off with his knee. Lavillenie was booed by the crowd during the competition and the medal ceremony, causing him to break down in tears as da Silva attempted to calm the crowd and support Lavillenie. Lavillenie compared the incident to Jesse Owens being booed at the Olympics in 1936, although he later apologized for the comment, saying it was made in the heat of the moment and he deeply regretted it.
