Eaton took charge of the seven-event competition by running the 60 meters in 6.66 seconds, equaling his personal best and finishing .13 seconds faster than when he set the world record in 2012.
The American still has the long jump, shot put and high jump to come Friday before the competition concludes with three events on Saturday.
