International couple are medal-winning pair


That’s what the Eatons call a fun day out at the world indoor championships in Sopot, Poland. Canadian Brianne Theisen Eaton already has a pentathlon world silver medal to show off in front of her husband. American Ashton Eaton, though, looks like he has heptathlon gold as good as wrapped up before today’s finale. Don’t count out another indoor world record – he already did that at the last opportunity two years ago. Ahead of today’s 60 hurdles, pole vault and concluding 1,000 meters, Eaton is only one point shy of his world-record pace of 3,654 points after four events. Gold and silver is already what athletics’ leading couple won at the world outdoor championships in Moscow last year just after their wedding. – Associated Press
