SOPOT (Poland) (AFP) - American combined events king Ashton Eaton remained on course to break his own world heptathlon record at the World Indoor Championships on Saturday. Day two of the three-day competition also saw Jamaican sprint legend Veronica Campbell-Brown take to the blue running track at Sopot's Ergo Arena after a 10-month lay-off following a botched doping case. While Campbell-Brown and teammate Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce both qualified without difficulty for Sunday's 60m semi-finals, it was Eaton who stole the show in the Polish Baltic Sea resort. Eaton, whose Canadian wife Brianne Thiesen Eaton won silver in the women's pentathlon on Friday, started Saturday as the leader in the seven-discipline event on 3,653 pts.
