    Eaton on WR pace in heptathlon

    This is worthy of its own thread.

    After first day at the World Indoor he has 3654 points, compared to 3578 when he set the existing WR last year.

    His marks: 60m 6.79, long jump 26-9¼ | 8.16 PR, shot 47-9¼ | 14.56 PR, high jump 6-8 | 2.03

      And, if not for the "acoustic" problem in the arena he may have run at least .08 faster in the 60m

      -6.71 would boost his score by 40 points
      -6.69 would boost his score by 65 points.

        Note that the SP is an indoor PR; his outdoor PR is 14.74. LJ is a big PR outdoor or indoor (outdoor PR 8.04).

        Barring a PV disaster, the WR looks to be assured.

          Looks like Eaton set a World Best for LJ in the Hept. That 8.16 is a big PR. Maybe he's got a better chance than I originally thought of getting the WB in a Deca (8.22).

          Per Frank Zarnowski's press release info, off his website:

            It looks likely that he'll have the three greatest scores ever for the Hep.

              I think that there will come a time when Eaton will do 27 feet in the LJ, 7 feet in the HJ, and 18 feet in the PV in a decathlon.

                Is there video available of Eaton's shot putting? Is he still using a right-foot, left-foot step back technique (as in 2011) or has he switch to a glide/ rotation?

                  At least until next year when he'll have have the four best performances... Eaton is amazing.

                    After 6 events Eaton with 5,690 points. He needs to run 2:39.5 in order to break the WR. With a PB that is five secconds faster he should make it. If he will run around his PB he will break the record by 50-60 points. Good competition from Eaton although the high jump (2.03) should have been better. There is no reason whu someone with Eaton's ability will not jump 2.10+ regulary.

                      According to the combined events table provided by the IAAF the exact time needed for him to get the 879 points necessary for a world record is 2:39.54. And as you said it is doable. Nataliya Dobrynska got her world record in the indoor pentathlon with 948 points in the final event, the 800 meters.

                        And Eaton is leading by more than 460 points. This seems unheard of to lead a world championship by this much.

                        I would be shocked if he doesn't walk away with another WR.

                              I expect a number of men to beat his score in the NCAA today--his score after 6 events.
