Eaton Takes the U.S. Track and Field Crown

The headline should read: "Local Boy Does Good". Former Mountain View track standout Ashton Eaton was the odds-on favorite to become the U.S. Decathlon Championship at the USA Track and Field Outdoor Championships. And he not only won, the closest competitor was 700 points behind him. Compounding the victory, the championships were held in Eatons' home field: Hayward Field in Eugene, in front of a hometown crowd. Eaton now goes on to compete in the World Championships in South Korea later this summer and then hopefully, the 2012 Olympics in London. KBND congratulates Bennd’s own Aston Eaton and we wish him well.
