Records fell and favorites prevailed as Doha, Qatar hosted the IAAF World Indoor Championships in athletics this past weekend. American Bernard Lagat became the oldest man in history -- at 35, and without a cane or walker! -- to win gold in a world indoor championship when he bested a younger field to take the 3000m race. And on the women's side, Ethiopian Kalkidan Gezahegne became the youngest woman in history -- at 18, without training wheels! -- to win a gold as she dropped the older generation en route to victory in the 1500m race. Sterling performances were also turned in by Britain's Jessica Ennis in the Pentathlon, Croatia's Blanka Vlasic in the high jump, and Cuba's Dayron Robles in the 60m hurdles. ( 22 photos total)
