Shawn BarberIAAF Indoor World Tour, a sort of Indoor Diamond League which takes place in four meetings, ended this week end and it awarded 11 Wild Card that will allow the owners to directly take part to the Indoor World Championships in Portland.

There might be, for the first time in the history, the possibility that a country will have the absolute predominance in some speciality since the countries winning the Wild Card could decide to bring 3 athletes instead of the two provided. This may happen in the 60m and in the male triple jump with three American athletes, in the female 1500m with three Etiopian athletes and in the female long jump with three British athletes.

Besides the Wild Card, the winners received a price of $20.000, here is the list of the winning athletes.

MEN

60m – Mike Rodgers (USA)
800m – Adam Kszczot (POL)
3000m – Augustine Choge (KEN)
