Pole vault return


POLE vault world recordhold­er Renaud Lavillenie will make his 2015 Diamond League debut today in Eugene, Oregon, as he returns from a bruised shoulder.

The Frenchman, who won Olympic gold in 2012, opted out of the season-opening Diamond League meeting this month in Doha, and will be eager to resume an outdoor campaign pointed at the World Championsh­ips in Beijing in August.

American record-holder Tyson Gay, who is trying to revive his career, headlines the men’s 100m field that also features Oregon native Ryan Bailey.
