Olympics 2012: Team USA's Decathletes Eaton and Hardee Are 'World's Greatest Athletes'

Ashton Eaton and Trey Hardee became the first American men to take home gold and silver in the decathlon since Milt Campbell and Rafer Johnson in 1956. Their combined point total is also the highest ever of any other country that had a duo win the top two spots in the Olympics. Eaton and Hardee were leading from the start of their 100m race all the way through the long jump, shot put, high jump, 400m, 110m hurdles, discus, pole vault, javelin and finishing with a grueling 1500m run.
