I think Ashton Eaton is the World's Greatest young decathlete. Why? In a decathlon competition, Eaton has run the 100m in 10,35 seconds, the 400m in 46,85, the hurdles in 13,85 and the 1500m in 4.20,75. He scores more points in the runs than Bryan Clay, Daley Thompson and Dan O’Brien did.
Eaton is the same size as Roman Sebrle, the world record-holder with 9026 points, but Eaton is faster than Sebrle and he is only 22 year old.
He has seven 8000-point performances. Nobody in history has done that before at his age.
I think that Ashton Eaton could be the guy to get close to breaking William Toomey’s 400m record 45,68!
