Thanks for the information you often give Joaquin. But about the hurdles. This is not Jarret Eaton, Joaquin, according to iaaf.org. Jarret did 7.58 on 28 01 11. Ashton Eaton did 7.56 on 19 02 11. His new pb is 45.51 in the discus throw on last thursday.
Kind regards

Thanks BJ, apparently there is a mistake for the Discus to. I think the americans tryed to convert from meters to feet. Journalist Ken Goe writes for oregonlive.com that he did 152 feet 7 inches and that is 46.51 meters!

The media guide for the:
92nd NATIONAL DECATHLON CHAMPIONSHIPS, source:
http://decathlonusa.typepad.com/files/2011-usa-men...
do have Eaton with PRs: 8457 / 6499 10.19+2.7 804 1474 211 46.28 13.35+.8 4551 526 5793 4:20.56.
There has been some confusion here regarding his PR in the discus throw, that they do list at 45,51m.
They further do have him with 57,93m in the javellin throw - a typing mistake from the 57,23m he is listed here, or an unknown PR?
Best wishes, Sven

Above confusion about Eaton's discus PB is now academic. He just threw 47.36 (155' 5") at the Thorpe Cup meet. That is more than six meters beyond his US Nationals mark.

Congratulations, Ashton Eaton, for giving your all on June 22-23, 2012, to break the world record with 9,039 points in horrendous weather conditions in your hometown of Eugene, Oregon, before Milt Campbell, Rafer Johnson, Bill Toomey, Bruce Jenner, and Dan O'Brien in an event celebrating the hundredth anniversary of Jim Thorpe's first Olympic decathlon victory in Stockholm and with the United States championship and Olympic Trials at stake. It does not get better than that.

Congratulations to a guy who is gonna take this event to the next level in the US like Sebrle did in the rest of the world!

I think he can go way higher with good conditions. He missed many points in shot, high jump, 400, discus. If you also consider the cool weather not ideal conditions for sprinting he shoud go even faster which is scary

I saw Eaton run the 100 in 10.19 in Berkeley in May of 2010, but I'm pretty sure it was just barely wind-aided. If PR's are only for non windy marks, you might want to go with his 10.23 WR.
