At the 2014 World Junior Championships in Athletics in Eugene, Oregon, Chapelle won his first major gold medal, vaulting to a world junior leading height of 5.55 m. He broke into tears as he listened to La Marseillaise, the national anthem of France, after he received his gold medal on top of the podium at Hayward Field. He became only the second pole vaulter to win a junior world title for France since Jean Galfione in 1990.
