We’ve done a little research. Below are all of the American medalists in the history of the IAAF World Indoor Championships.
Note: The 1985 competition was known as the World Indoor Games, but we’ve included it.
Drug cheat Regina Jacobs‘ medals are still technically on the books but we’ve scratched her out below as her whole career is a farce in our minds.
It’s interesting to note that ignoring her, the US women have never won gold at World Indoors. A US-born man has only won gold once (David Krummenacker gold in 800 in 2003). Kenyan-born Bernard Lagat has achieved World Indoor 3,000 glory in each of the last two competitions.
Hopefully more history is made in 2014.
