The Naked Pole Vaulter
  • April 1st, 2009

In a desperate effort to find new sponsors, pole vault silver medalist Romain Mesnil has turned to baring his body.

Well not that kind of soliciting of course, but by creating a media buzz with a video of him jogging naked with his pole through the capital of Paris. His crown jewel was of course boxed out with a black graphics in the video.

Aside from the video, the Frenchman is now turning to internet auction site looking for sponsorship deals from companies and individuals.

The stunt was also done in mind to raise money to for two charities. The 31 year old has a personal best of 5.95 metres and finished 14th at the last Beijing Olympic Games.
