The greatest decathlon of all time has called it a career at age 28. Eaton and his wife, Canadian Olympic bronze medallist Brianne Theisen-Eaton, announced on their website today that they are retiring together at the young age of 28.
Marra says he's been doing track and field since a kid when he pole vaulted over his mom's closelines in the backyard. Other interesting tidbits including he was living in California and basically retired from coaching when he was asked by Vin Lananna to coach Ashton Eaton at Oregon. Also some awkward pronoun dialogue about Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner.
