Renaud Lavillenie tops annual list of highest-paid athletes

In 2021 it looked like the athlete’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (June 15) that Lavillenie is the highest-paid athlete in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between May 2023 and May 2024, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The French athlete has an estimated net worth of $185 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Lavillenie Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Barbezieux-Saint-Hilaire Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlavillenie - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Renaud) and a fashion line called “Renaud Lavillenie Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Renaud fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
