The mother of the world record holder Ashton Eaton is back in Bend and slowly coming back to earth.  Roslyn or "Roz" Eaton was there in last weekend Eugene when Ashton not only qualified for the Olympic Track Team, but also broke the World Record for the top Decathlon mark.  "Really, it’s more of a surreal experience, for all of us really.  We all kind of sat around the table and said, what just happened?  We didn't have any doubts that he was going to qualify for the Olympics. What was surprising was the world record; we didn't expect that.  And I don't think Ashton expected that, and so it’s the cherry on top of the whole thing.  So things have changed drastically for Ashton, I'm sure in Ashton's life.  I'm still trying to soak it in, trying to wrap my brain around it."

 

Now, Bend's own Ashton Eaton is the World Record holder in the 10-event discipline that determines the World's Greatest All Around Track and Field Athlete.  We'll have more of our interview with Roz Eaton on Monday's “Take Five.”
