Decathlon World and Olympic champion Ashton Eaton moves with controlled discipline. His event, comprised of 10 distinct athletic disciplines, requires complete synchronicity of the mind and body. That’s why its winner is traditionally defined as “the greatest athlete in the world.”
Eaton, also the sport’s world record holder, embodies the drive and fluid dynamism this title implies. His unparalleled athleticism is born of a holistic training regime detailed in the seventh installment of Nike Training’s Inner Strength Documentary series —and the results of it will be on display as Eaton defends his title at the IAFF World Championships in Beijing.
