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

It was fitting that the top indoor performer of 2014, Ethiopian runner Genzebe Dibaba, struck gold at the World Indoor Championships. Dibaba, who set three indoor world records earlier in the season, won the 3000 meters decisively, with more than two seconds to spare. American Francena McCorory was the only double-gold medal winner after finishing first in the 400 meters and running the third leg of the victorious American 4 x 400-meter relay squad. New Zealand's Valerie Adams won the shot put to earn her fourth career World Indoor Championship medal - three golds and one silver - while Olympic and World champion sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica made a successful Indoor Championship debut by winning the 60 meters.
