The London Olympics may be over; but all of Bend is still basking in the glow of our own Ashton Eaton taking the gold medal in the decathlon. 

 

A huge crowd gathered at the Tower Theatre last Thursday to watch and cheer Ashton as he completed the final event of the decathlon.

 

A raucous cheer filled the theatre when it was made official that Ashton had won.

 

Mountain View Athletic Director and Eaton's track coach, Dave Hood describes what those final seconds were like.  "He didn't break the Olympic record, he was just short of it by about 30 points. But you know that 1500 he was just trying to hang on and survive, and not fall flat so he could save the gold medal. But he is a young man, so he's got a lot of time to reset his own world record. there's no doubt we'll see him in Rio."

 

Hood says they are working on plans to get Eaton back in Bend to celebrate with the community; but nothing is definite yet.  1110 KBND will keep you informed when Ashton Eaton is coming home.
