USATF Championships Precede World Meet

World Champions The World Indoor Championships in Portland, Oregon, March 17-20, crowned world champions in all the indoor events. At the shortest distance, the 60 meter world champion was American Trayvon Bromell (left), who won an extremely close contest among the entire field. The women’s 60 winner was also an American, Barbara Pierre (right), who beat Dafne Schippers.

France’s Renaud LaVillenie was the winner of the pole vault, and Boris Berian continued his rapid rise to the upper levels of 800 meter running with a victory in that event.
