15th IAAF World Indoor Championships
Sopot, Poland
March 7-9, 2014

The United States closed the Championships by setting the event's lone world record, in the 4 x 400-meter relay. The quartet of Kyle Clemons, David Verburg, Kind Butler III and Calvin Smith broke the indoor mark with a time of 3:02.13. Clemons, who previously earned a bronze medal in the 400 meters, was the only man to win more than one medal in Sopot.

Ashton Eaton came close to beating his own world mark for the indoor heptathlon - which he set during the 2012 Championships - but fell 13 points short. Eaton was one of four repeat champions, along with Mohammed Aman in the 800 meters, Ryan Whiting in the shot put and Mauro da Silva in the long jump. Bernard Lagat made a bid for his fourth World Indoor title at 3000 meters, but placed second to Caleb Ndiku. Still, the 39-year-old became the oldest man to earn a World Indoor medal.
