Brianne is married to Ashton Eaton, who is the 2012 Olympic Champ and world record holder in the decathlon ("deca" means "ten") - a sport that has 3 more events than the heptathlon ("hep" means "seven").
She is a super planner! Before she goes to the amusement park, she maps out all the rides that her and Ashton want to ride to maximize time.
"Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you, they’re there to let you know something is worth it." (from Canadian Olympic Team Official website)
