Oregonian Track Star Looking To Top Epic Season

By Jim McCoy Wed 10th April SportsAshton Eatontrack and field
Ashton Eaton is trying to figure out a way to top his season-for-the-ages during which he set a world decathlon record at U.S. trials last June and captured Olympic gold two months later at the London Games. The 25-year-old Eaton had such a memorable year that he became a clue in a newspaper crossword puzzle. Since his big summer, Eaton has been invited to many a dinner party in his hometown of Bend, Ore., where he's constantly asked just what he's planning to do for an encore performance. Now that has even him puzzled. Still, this will be another unforgettable year for Eaton - off the track, anyway. On July 13, Eaton will marry Oregon heptathlete and Canadian Olympian Brianne Theisen. Said Eaton: "It's going to be a sweet day."
