As the economic crisis hits people from all walks of life, a French pole vaulting champion has done the obvious thing to highlight his quest for a new sponsorship deal - he ran naked through the streets of Paris, holding his pole aloft, and posted the video on the internet. Romain Mesnil, who won a silver medal at the 2007 Athletics World Championships in Osaka, used to be sponsored by Nike - but says his contract expired last year and was not renewed.In the video, Mesnil runs with his pole around well-known Parisian tourist spots like Montmartre and the Pont des Arts across the River Seine. Somewhat disappointingly, a black censor bar has been added to cover up his rude bits. (This makes it hard to verify that he was, in fact, truly naked. 'It was probably for budgetary and strategic reasons. It's the crisis,' he wrote on his website.
LET'S JUST HOPE HIS NAKED POLE VAULTING DOESN'T GO AS WRONG AS THESE..
AND WHAT ABOUT THIS FOR TWISTING & TURNING...THIS GUY SHOULD THINK ABOUT A CAREER AS A CONTORTIONIST!
