    Some of the top athletes on Earth will attempt to prove they are the best at what they do at the 2014 IAAF World Indoor Championships.

    The three-day extravaganza will take place in Sopot, Poland, and will feature many of the track and field events that fans love to watch every four years at the Summer Olympics.

    Runners will compete in distances ranging for 60 meters to 3,000 meters, along with hurdles and a relay. The event will also include long jump, high jump, triple jump, pole vault and shot put. For those that can do it all, there is the heptathlon for men and the pentathlon for women.

    One person who knows something about doing well in these type of contests is Ashton Eaton, the 2012 Olympic gold medalist in the pentathlon. The American also took first place at the 2012 World Indoor Championships in the heptathlon, setting a new record in the process.

    He discussed his goals for this week in a press conference, via USA Track and Field:

    It’s all about pushing the limits and seeing where it takes you. The IAAF invites (the combined event athletes) because they saw our performances and wanted us to compete here. I’m not going for a world record, I’m competing to win and whatever else happens is a cherry on top.

    As long as he has remained in shape, there is no reason to doubt that he will be able to once again come away with a win and challenge a world record.

    The hometown fans will also be excited to watch Polish shot putter Tomasz Majewski, the two-time Olympic gold medalist. He will hope to hold off German David Storl and American Ryan Whiting in a competition he has dominated at the highest levels.

    Overall, there will be tons of excitement for this entire event. Follow along with each session with this tracker that will be updated throughout the weekend.

    Day 3 Recap

    The final day of the world championships was one of the most fact paced events track and field fans will experience all season. The culmination of the meet lived up to the expectations set by the first two days.

    Team USA dominated both the men’s and women’s relay events, winning first place in both. The Americans also placed first in the women’s 800 meters (Chanelle Price) and the men’s 60-meters hurdles (Omo Osaghae).

    Long-distance running powerhouses Kenya and Ethiopia proved their dominance once again on Sunday. Kenyan Caleb Mwangangi Ndiku won the 3000 meters race on the men’s side, and Ethiopians Genzebe Dibaba and Mohammed Aman finished first in the women’s 3000 meters and men’s 800 meters, respectively.

    As great as the pure racing was, the field events like the pole vault (won by Yarisley Silva of Cuba), long jump (Eloyse Lesueur of France), high jump (Mutaz Essa Barshim of Qater) and triple jump (Lyukman Adams of Russia) made this world championship special.

    Add in Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica winning the women’s 60 meters, and this was the perfect culmination of the event.

    Saturday was a big day for the United States as three different athletes took home gold medals.

    Ashton Eaton successfully defended his title in the men's heptathlon thanks to a well-rounded performance across the board. He led the field in the long jump and posted the best time in the 60-meter dash, 60-meter hurdles and the 1,000-meter run.

    Americans Nia Ali and Francenca McCorory were also able to finish in first place in their respective events.

    Konstadinos Filippidis won the first gold medal of the day thanks to his narrow victory in the pole vault. While he Malte Mohr and Jan Kudlicka all topped out at 5.80 meters, the Greek star is the only one who made the mark on his first try, giving him the victory.

    A similarly close battle occurred in the women's high jump, but Maria Kuchina and Kamila Licwinko ended up tying with jumps of 2.00 meters.

    Sweden's Abeba Aregawi had no such concerns with arguably the most dominant showing of the day in the women's 1,500-meter run. She beat the field by nearly seven seconds and made the race nothing more than a battle for second.

    The world championships conclude on Sunday with the rest of the events, including the highly anticipated 4 x 400-meter relay races.

Day 1

    Men's Shot Put

    1Ryan WhitingUSA22.05
    2David StorlGermany21.79
    3Tomas WalshNew Zealand21.26
    4Tomasz MajewskiPoland21.04
    5Georgi IvanovBulgaria21.02

    Women's Pentathlon

    1Nadine BroersenNetherlands4830
    2Brianne Theisen EatonCanada4768
    3Alina FodorovaUkraine4724
    4Sharon Day-MonroeUSA4718
    5Claudia RathGermany4681


    Nadine Broersen can hold the title as the best female athlete in the world after winning the women's pentathlon with a great all-around effort.

    The Dutch star pulled away from the pack with an incredible performance on the high jump, clearing 1.93 meters. This gave her 1,145 points, which was almost 100 more than anyone else in the field. She did not win any of the other events, but she did enough to stay ahead of Brianne Theisen Eaton and the rest of the pack.

    Eaton showed off her speed in the 60-meter hurdles and the 800-meter race, but she could not do enough to get the title. Meanwhile, her husband, Ashton Eaton, is well on his way toward defending his title in the men's heptathlon.

    The Olympic gold medalist blew away the field in the 60-meter dash and the long jump to gain an early lead. While Belarus' Andrei Krauchanka cut the deficit with an outstanding effort in the high jump, Eaton still holds a 70-point lead through four of seven events.

    In the only other event to conclude on Friday, American Ryan Whiting took home the gold medal in the shot put competition. His fourth attempt was the best of the day, reaching 22.05 meters.

    Polish star Tomasz Majewski could not reach the podium after the two-time Olympic gold medalist managed only a throw of 21.04 to finish in fourth place.  

    Also notable from the first day of action was the heats for men's 60-meter dash. Great Britain's Richard Kilty posted the best time of the day at 6.53 seconds, but Americans Trell Kimmons and Marvin Bracy both qualified for the semifinals.

    Saturday should feature even more excitement as it will include the finals for the men's heptathlon as well as the pole vault, long jump, 1,500-meter run, 400-meter run and 60-meter run. On the women's side, the triple jump, shot put, 1,500-meter race, high jump, 400-meter run and 60-meter hurdles will all conclude.
