SOPOT, Poland (AP) — Nadine Broersen of the Netherlands won the pentathlon at the world indoor championships, containing the damage in the closing 800 meters to beat Brianne Theisen Eaton of Canada on Friday.

Alina Fodorova of Ukraine took third place.

Broersen based her gold-medal performance on great high jumping, and finished with 4,830 points, while Theisen Eaton set a national record of 4,768. Fodorova had a total of 4,724.

While Theisen Eaton took silver, her husband Ashton Eaton was dominating the men's heptathlon, already poised to defend his title and with a good shot of setting a world record on the closing day of the seven-event competition on Saturday.

At last year's outdoor world championships, Eaton won the decathlon while his newlywed wife took silver in the heptathlon.
