2015


In 2014 there was no primary outdoor global athletics championship, as neither the Summer Olympics nor the World Championships in Athletics occurred in the year. The 2014 IAAF World Indoor Championships, and the 2014 IAAF Continental Cup were the foremost global events to be held in 2014. The 2014 IAAF World Relays marked the debut of the new international competition exclusively for relay races.

The Diamond League entered its fifth year as the foremost seasonal track and field series. The 2014 IAAF World Half Marathon Championships and the 2014 IAAF World Race Walking Cup were the highest level competitions for those disciplines. Major regional events which took place in 2014 include the European Championships, African Championships, and Commonwealth Games.

  • nb1 Two faster women's marathon times were set at the 2014 Boston Marathon: 2:18:57 by Rita Jeptoo and 2:19:59 by Buzunesh Deba. The Boston Marathon course, however, is ineligible for record purposes. Jeptoo also failed a doping test prior to setting the time, making it an invalid one.[1]
