Very good opening season time. Not only is it a fast time foa a season opener but he won by a large margin. The
other thing I noticed is that he seems to have a longer stride similar to when he first started sprinting. Don't get me
wrong here. Lemaitre has always had a long stride but it seems longer now. I love this. Gatlin despite drugs has always
been known as a long strider despite his height. Bolt is and many other elite sprinters are. You can make up for a lack
of turnover ratio by covering more distance. Just dont' overstride but he looked great. Thanks for the video.

Viva PepeLeFlew. Viva France. Viva Lemaitre!!:)

i hope no injuries to Christophe for this year

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.

No i totaly fail my race ahah.
Im not in really good shape and i fail my start so bad race.
0.06 of my record

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.

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