Eaton continues family legacy
INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 4, 2013 – USA Gymnastics' slogan, "Begin Here. Go Anywhere," is truly at work with Arizona-native Jagger Eaton. Eaton made history at the 2012 X Games at age 11, when, as the competition's youngest competitor ever, he qualified to finals. Later in 2012, he was invited to a Mega Ramp in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and finished fourth. His most recent accomplishment was a third-place finish at the Tampa Am Skateboard event, which includes the top 300 amateur skateboarders from around the world.
Coming up for 2013, Jaggar will go to a qualifier March 8 at Woodward West and, if he qualifies, will go to Summer X Games in Barcelona, Brazil, Zurich and Los Angeles.
Check out videos of Eaton competing below.
Eaton's grandfather, Stormy, was a long-time U.S. national team coach, whose coaching resume includes the likes of 1989 World team member Sandy Woolsey and former national team member Liz Crandall. Eaton's dad, Geoff, currently owns Desert Devils Gymnastics and Kids that Rip Skateboard School in Mesa, Ariz.
