“I take advantage of my family, my son and I resource myself”
“I will not be at the start, he explains. Neither this meeting nor any other. I take advantage of my family, my son and I resource myself. I have not trained since my return to the Paris region in July. There is no big league this season, it’s a very special season. I made this choice in agreement with my coach. “
A choice that may come as a surprise, when we see many sprinters taking advantage of this summer, admittedly apart, to string together great performances. “The guys are in good shape, yes, but just because I stop for a few weeks doesn’t mean that everything will change, indicates Vicaut (28 years), who will therefore have run in competition only once in 2020, a 100 yards on July 9 in Florida. I prefer to rest, that’s all. 2021 will be an important year. “
The 7th of the Rio Olympics over 100 m assures that they did not discuss with the DTN about their choice, which also leads to a certain financial loss (commitment bonuses in meetings, performance bonuses from their equipment supplier).
He does not regret his American exile
Vicaut plans to return to Jacksonville, where Reider’s training group is based, in November. “I don’t regret at all my choice to go to the United States. I was a little afraid to change after 11 years at Insep, but I appreciate the work we do there, with an impressive volume. “
