Women’s World Junior Indoor Records

The IAAF did not begin to ratify World Junior Indoor Records until the 2012 season. Prior to that we listed those ratified by the T&FN Records Committee, based on an initial compilation by Ed Gordon in TAFWA’s annual all-time list book. T&FN continues to recognize marks in “standard” events that the IAAF ignores.

All Junior athletes must remain teenagers throughout the calendar year in which the mark is set.

Symbols: + = unofficial event; p = mark still pending ratification
