Re: Ashton Eaton PR's and possible WR
Posted: Aug 18, 2011
Eaton did throw 47.36m (155-4) in the discus this past weekend and also ran the 100 in 10.26 (wind legal), high jumped 2.10m (6-10.75) and threw the shot 13.96m (45-9.75). The shot was really his only "weak"event.

Russ Hodge was about 225 lbs I think at the peak of his career. He might be pretty high on the list in the 225 category.

Clay's 1500 pr is actually 4:38.93 not 7 seconds faster than 4:41.65. As someone who likes seeing guys like Curtis Beach and Joe Detmer do well in the decathlon, I still admire Clay for how good he's been at most of the other events. I agree with B. J. in that when Clay has a comfortable lead going in to the 1500, it makes sense for him to run the 1500 at a more conservative pace so as not to risk "blowing up" and losing a nearly gift-wrapped title.

For what it's worth, though Clay isn't at the level, overall in the decathlon, he was in 2008, I read an article a few months ago that said he thinks he can pr in the 1500 and 400 this summer.
