Track and Field: Ashton Eaton Breaks Own World Decathlon Record, Looks Ready For More Olympic Gold

I would prefer that Oregon native, University of Oregon graduate and Eugene resident Ashton Eaton only break the decathlon world record at his home track, the University of Oregon’s Hayward Field, and maybe he would as well. But athletes can’t choose where and when they break a record. If they train and prepare well enough […]

Shortly after bringing home gold, decathlon world-champion and newly wed husband Ashton Eaton turned fan as he watched his wife Brianne Theisen-Eaton try to win her own gold medal. Unfortunately, Theisen-Eaton came up just short in her gold medal quest, earning silver honors in the IAAF World Championships.

“I’m way more proud of her than myself and she vice versa for me,” Eaton said. “It’s cool to be in the same event and be successful at the same time and be able to travel around the world together.”

Despite coming just shy of the double gold, it’s still quite the accomplishment. These two former Ducks are easily the most dominant couple in the track community, and are quickly making a case for best athlete couple for any sport.

“I’ve always watched him get his medals and think, ‘I wonder what that feels like?'” Theisen-Eaton said. “Now I’m getting a little taste of it.”

These two are set to take the world stage by storm. Eaton, of course, has already had quite the incredible professional career. He’s an Olympian and world-record holder, and now Theisen-Eaton will embark on her own pro career, and they might have to get a bigger house for all the incoming hardware.

Now that the track power couple is done with the IAAF World Championships, what’s next? Maybe a break for a honeymoon?

“We’re contemplating on the honeymoon, because now would be the perfect time to go lay down on the beach somewhere, but if we laid down on the beach, I just shut my eyes, and in 10 minutes, he goes, ‘How much longer do you think we’re going to lay here?'” Theisen-Eaton said. “If we’re going to do something, it has to be something where we’re out doing activities, because he can’t sit around for too long.”

MOSCOW – Ashton Eaton is one ridiculous athlete. The Bend, Oregon, native and former University of Oregon star kept his honor as world’s greatest athlete with a gold medal finish the decathlon at the IAAF World Championships.

“It feels good. It was the last thing I had left on my list to do,” Eaton said. “Now I’ve done everything there is to do in multi-events.”

And also competing is fellow Oregon alum, and Eaton’s wife, Brianne Theisen-Eaton of team Canada. She is competing in the heptathlon and is a favorite in the event.

“I’m way more proud of her than myself and she vice versa for me,” Eaton said. “It’s cool to be in the same event and be successful at the same time and be able to travel around the world together.
