Bend’s own Ashton Eaton will be competing in the marquee event of the 2012 Olympics, the Decathlon.

 

That's 10 separate track and field events.  The winner earns the title of "Worlds Greatest Athlete."  Tower Theatre Executive Director Ray Solley says they are thrilled to open their doors so the community can see it unfold.  "The idea is to have a place where the community can gather and watch the event, together with a lot of your friends and neighbors, on the big screen to cheer him on and to really be a part of a once in a lifetime Olympic moment." 

 

Solley says since the Decathlon is a 2-day event, what will happen is on the second night NBC will have the final event live with pre-taped previous events to have a whole package in one evening.

The doors will open at 7 p.m. on August 9th and the airing begins at 8 p.m.  There will also be special entertainment before the competition begins.
