Enthusiasts will also find a number of photographs from the Championships along with each of the daily reports.

The official start lists will be posted as soon as these become available tomorrow.

Biographies of the majority of participating athletes, as at 1 January 1997, are also available in a special section of the IAAF web for the 1997 World Indoor Championships and these are accessible by name, nation or by event.

A special hyper link from the home page of the official web site will take "surfers" to the Paris competition web.
