Renaud LavillenieFew days before the clou event of this indoor season let us analyze the teams of the major squads who are going to take part into the Portland Indoor World Championships.

The French team is small in numbers but full of quality: the star will be the world record holder of pole vault Renaud Lavillenie who leads the seasonal ranking with 6,03. “Le Roi” will have to pay attention to the Canadian Shawn Barber, recently admitted into the 6-meters club and thus looking for further international attention after the 2015 world title.

The hurdlers will be once more ready to show up the french school value, led by the seasonal leader Dmitri Bascou and Pascal Martinot-Lagarde, both of them looking for a world medal.

Waiting for Teddy Tamgho, the triple jump will be represented by the European Champion Benjamin Campaore, where asin the long jump Kafetien Gomis is recent winner of the French title, claimed with a 8,23, a measur which projects her on the high part of the starting list.

Polevault: Jerome Clavier, Renaud Lavillenie
Long jump: Kafetien Gomis
Triple jump: Benjamin Compaore
