USATF announces Team USA roster for IAAF World Indoor Championships

2/26/2014
 
INDIANAPOLIS -- 48 athletes were named to Team USA for the 14th IAAF World Indoor Track & Field Championships to be held Friday-Sunday, March 7-9 in Sopot, Poland.
 
Team USA features a mix of youth and experience, as teenage phenom Mary Cain is the youngest athlete representing the United States, while 39-year-old Bernard Lagat looks to claim his third-straight 3,000m World Indoor Championships title.
 
Janay DeLoach Soukup, the 2012 World Indoor silver medalist in the women’s long jump, looks to make the medal stand in a different event, the 60-meter hurdles. 
 
Team USA is looking for a repeat performance of 2012, where the United States set the gold medal record with 10 in Istanbul, Turkey. Team USA turned in an 18-medal effort in Turkey, including gold medals from five current members of Team USA (Ashton Eaton, Lagat, Ryan Whiting, women's 4x4 - Natasha Hastings and Jernail Hayes).
 
A full schedule of events can be found on IAAF.org. The official hashtag for the IAAF World Indoor Track & Field Championships is #Sopot2014. Join the conversation along with USATF on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
