Jarret Eaton On Chasing The Olympic Dream Unsponsored But With World Championship Medals


“You’re able to make a living if you’re at some of these meets and they’ll pay you. The discipline is to not spend all of that money all at the same time. I’ve really been really blessed with the knowledge to understand investments and savings and things like that to be able to live off a certain amount and be able to do all the things that need to get done. That’s truly been my saving grace. Last year was a huge blow.”

Jarret Eaton is a world championship silver medalist in the 60m hurdles. He’s a two-time national champion in the event. At this weekend’s Trials of Miles Kansas City Qualifier, he finished second in the men’s 110 hurdles. In this episode, he takes us through what it’s been like for him to push himself in this event since 2012 through some ups and downs, why he goes after it unsponsored, how to size up the 110 hurdles at the Olympics Trials and much more. We recorded this a week before the race in Kansas City.
