Bend’s own Ashton Eaton is currently in first place for the men's decathlon at the London Olympics.

 

Wednesday's events included the 400 meter run, shot put, long jump and 100 meter run.  He has more than 200 points from his nearest competitor, fellow American Trey Hardee.

 

Ashton's coach, Tate Metcalf is also in London and spoke with our news partner, News Channel 21 about his latest conversation with Ashton:  "We always say “Bring it and leave it on the track!’  That I love him and then he immediately responded ‘I love you too.’ And he goes 'We're going to show the world something big’ and I truly believe that."

 

Eaton's final event for the decathlon are Thursday; beginning with the javelin throw at 10:30 our time.  The last event, the 1500 meter race is at 1:20 p.m.  You can watch Eaton's progress live at the Tower Theatre Thursday; doors open at 9:30 a.m.
