Ashton James Eaton (born January 21, 1988 in Bend, Oregon) is an American track and field athlete that specialises in all-around competitions. He is an Olympic champion, a five-time world champion (twice in the decathlon and three times in the heptathlon), who holds a world record in the indoor heptathlon event. Eaton is also a former world record holder in the decathlon.

Interesting Fact

Having developed a interest in track and field from a young age, Eaton started to compete professionally in 2008. At the Olympic Trials he placed fifth and was not elected to represent the United States in the Olympics. Setting himself a goal to make it to the Olympics, Eaton completely dedicated himself to athletics: not only did he win a gold medal at the 2012 Indoor World Championship, but also placed a world record in decathlon at the United States Olympic Trials in the same year. He then had two successful Olympics in a row: he took two gold medals, becoming one of the three men to ever win two gold medals in a decathlon.

Quote

Competition is pretty much the essence of everything, it gives humans drive.
