In the build up to the 2012 London Olympic Games, every media outlet, company and publication wants a part of those athletes going for gold later on in the summer.
Oregon Track Club Elite’s Ashton Eaton is one of those sought after athletes. The decathlete participated in a photo shoot with famed photographer Annie Leibovitz for famed fashion magazine, Vogue (as seen in the picture above).
Eaton and his mother were also part of a group of Olympic athletes featured for Mother’s Day on the NBC’s The Today Show.
A ‘Dan vs. Dave’ style, ‘Trey vs. Ashton’ Nike campaign would be a lot of fun as well, but that seems unlikely.
Eaton is a great athlete with a wonderful story, we can be glad to have him as an ambassador of our sport.
