The two first met in 2006 during Eaton’s freshman year at Oregon and fell in love at the 2007 Pan American Junior Athletics Championships, held in Brazil: Theisen won the gold medal for Canada and then followed Eaton to enroll at the University of Oregon.
Six years later, Ashton married his University of Oregon teammate and girlfriend Brianne Theisen on July 15th, 2013, one year after both competed in the 2012 London Olympics.
This athletic couple may be fast on the track, but their love story got off to an adorably slow start.
Check out the video below of the Olympic couple sharing their love story on how they first met to that special day when they both said “I Do!”
