Track Star Ashton Eaton on Vogue Cover

Ashton Eaton is known as the “world’s greatest athlete,” a title that tends to naturally go with being the best decathlete in the world.

Easton is absolutely amazing—like a cartoon superhero! He heads to the Rio de Janeiro Olympics next month as the reigning Olympic champion, current world-record holder and multi-time world champion. He’s favored to win again, but the more compelling story around Eaton might be whether he and his wife—Canadian heptathlete Brianne Theisen—will both bring home gold medals in the multi-discipline events. Eaton dominated the decathlon at the recent U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene, Ore., on July 1-2 and also added an indoor world title in the heptathlon in March.

In the meantime, he’s on the cover of an upcoming issue of Vogue magazine alongside Miss Gigi Hadid, one of the most renowned models and recognizable faces in the industry.

Although it’s his first time in a leading cover role for the publication, Eaton has been inside the pages of uber-popular fashion and lifestyle magazine before. In 2012 he was a part of Vogue’s Olympic issue alongside tennis player Serena Williams and others.

The issue includes a behind-the-scenes look at the meeting of Eaton and Hadid, who—did you know?!—is the daughter of a former Olympic downhill skier. The issue drops July 26, but check out what happened at the cover shoot.
