Lavillenie triumphed with a clearance of 5.91 meters, which he accomplished on his second attempt. The Frenchman attempted six meters three times, with no success, but that was still enough to secure him the win. Lavillenie noted on his social networks that it was his 10th time competing at this meeting. He went on to thank Lausanne and the "good pole vault team."
Polish pole vaulter Pawel Wojciechowski came in second place with a season best of 5.84 meters, and Sam Kendricks came in third place with 5.77 meters, where he was tied with Kurtis Marschall from Australia.
