Jean-Louis Esnault achieved a major performance at the French Indoor Masters championships, improving the world M80 1.500m record to 5'47''84. At the championships in Nantes on February 22nd and 23rd. 734 athletes took part, no less than nineteen of France's best performances were achieved or improved.
Jean-Claude Deremy (national master's commission) reports on the homepage of the French Athletics Federation (athle.fr), freely translated: "With every change of the age group, Jean-Louis Esnault is in the starting blocks. Because he knows that the more years go by, the more they count double or triple. On 19th January, Jean-Claude celebrated his 80th birthday. He came to Nantes with the intention to run 1.500m faster than 5'48''47, the M80 world record set by Canadian Ed Whitlock in 2011. The reward was victory in 5'47''84, a new world record. Still not satisfied, he then raced the 3000 m three hours later, with a time of 13'02''17, just six seconds behind the European record." Jean-Claude, listed M75 European record holder 1.500m and 3.000m (see photo!), has registered for EMACI 2020 in Braga in the categories 400m, 800m, 1.500m, 3.000m and 5km cc M80.
Two other record holders, both registered for EMACI 2020, participated in Nantes with great success: Petra Bajeat (W50) and Nicole Alexis (W60).
Petra Bajeat dominated the 60m hurdles in 9''79 and was the only athlete of all to jump the 5m mark with 5.29m. Petra, W50 world record holder in long jump, high jump and pentathlon, intends to participate in the EMACI 2020 in Braga in her world record disciplines. Petra was awarded as female WMA 2019 Best Masters Athlete in the category Jumping.
Nicole Alexis (W60), won the French championship 60m and 200m titles in Nantes (9''00 and 29''66). Nicole is currently holding the world W55 60m and 200m indoor records. In Braga we can look forward to her 60m and 200m competitions, then in the age group W60.

Experienced sprint hurdler Pascal Martinot-Lagarde and reigning European champion Wilhem Belocian headline a nine-member French team selected for the World Athletics Indoor Championships 2022 to be held from 18-20 March.
Missing from the team, though, is the reigning world indoor heptathlon champion Kevin Mayer, who will not defend his title because of an Achilles injury. Read more about it here: World record holder Kevin Mayer pulls out of World Indoor Championships
Belocian, the 2021 European Indoor Championships gold medalist in the 60m hurdles, will be targeting a medal at Belgrade 2022 after showing some good form in the last couple of meetings. The 26-year-old won the national title at the French Indoor Championships last month at 7.53 seconds and then matched that time when extending his solid winter form with another victory in Paris over the weekend.
Martinot-Lagarde, meanwhile, will be aiming to add to his major championships medal haul when he joins Belocian in the men’s 60m hurdles. The 30-year-old who already owns two world indoor championships silver medals and one bronze, will look to add to that tally when he returns to Belgrade, the place where he won a European indoor silver medal in 2017.
Cyrena Samba-Mayela is one of three women named to the women’s team and she will compete in the women’s 60m hurdles. The 21-year-old owns a PB of 7.84 seconds, which she clocked in Karlsruhe, in January.
Meanwhile, former world record-holder Renaud Lavillenie will not be traveling to Serbia for the World Indoor Championships 2022. But there will be another Lavillenie in the men’s pole vault competition, as European indoor silver medallist Valentin Lavillenie has been selected along with Thibaut Collet.
The French team is completed by men’s triple jumpers Jean-Marc Pontvianne and Melvin Raffin, as well as Aurore Fleury who will compete in the women’s 1500m, and Leonie Cambours in the pentathlon.
