Wigan's Harry Coppell in season-best form
and live on Freeview channel 276
The 25-year-old pole vaulter cleared 5.57m and then 5.67m - each at the third attempt - in Paris.
He was unable to clear 5.76m but it will boost his confidence for a big year ahead.
"Really pleased for @Harry_Coppell jumping a big SB of 5.67m for 5th at Meeting Paris tonight," tweeted his coach Scott Simpson. "It’s been a tough few months but moving in the right direction."
Coppell’s partner, high jumper Emily Borthwick, tweeted: “18 steps down and some nice consistency ready for a big outdoors! Proud of you @Harry_Coppell.”
American Christopher Nilsen won the event with an impressive 5.88m.
Coppell last week became the British champion after triumphing in the UK Athletics Indoor Championships at Birmingham with a height of 5.50m.
Second-placed Ethan Walsh and third-placed Jack Phipps could only each manage 5.07m.
