    Yes 6.67 in heat.

    No surprize the second are in 6.76 so hard to find a comparative, if its good in the 30-60 or not.
    I hear his coach said, was good for 1 training since the stage in Agadir.
    We will wait like always.

    so less than 1 metre from your best .. not too bad. Maybe too much French wine and cheese??? :)
    In which region of France do you live? (I very much enjoy our trips to France).

    Ok, Vicaut 6.55 - Lemaitre 6.59

    Damn did he look good. Very smooth and relaxed. Good time for him and a
    confidence booster for sure! Glad to see him starting off the season on a positive
    note. He is due for a big year. It's been quite a while since he had an injury free
    season with very fast times and consistency. He is in his prime years so I'm hoping
    for the best. Way to go Christophe! Thanks for posting the video RCSMAN.

    great start for Lemaitre.
    I'm glad to be wrong in thinking Vicaut's start would give him the win ;)
    I'm hoping France has a tip-top relay team again this year, like a few years back

    Good time for Lemaitre.
    But even better is that he beat Vicaut.
    I don't think he's beaten Vicaut in a long time in the 60m or 100m.
    That must be a great confidence booster for him.
    Is it possible that Lemaitre will prove this skeptic wrong this season? ^-^

    2 Sub 6.6 times for Christophe at sea level.... if he can continue this consistently, a good summer awaits.

    I prefere to see Lemaitre do 6.57 with a bad start rather a good start... but its always better a 6.6x :)

    la piste de Mondeville est réputée très rapide mais la salle est un vrai congélateur, j'ai pu le vérifier

    You have nothing to worry about. Lemaitre always has a bad start. Always. :)
