World heptathlon silver medallist Brianne Theisen-Eaton explains how Ashton was able to ride on the Jurassic Park, the Revenge of the Mummy AND Flight of the Hippogriff rollercoasters in a single day.

1. I am very organised

“Maybe it stems from the fact that I am impatient, but I don’t like to waste time. This makes me very organised.

"I think it drives Ashton a little crazy but when we were at Universal Studios and he was really keen to go on all the rides, I got the map and instantly started mapping out which rides we could go on to maximise our time.

“Each Sunday night I make a dinner plan for the week and I even base the grocery list on where the grocery items are in the store, so I can be as efficient as possible.”

2. I’m an emotional person

“When I see a sad movie or read a sad book I cry easily. I also cry easily if there is somebody I care about who is going through something bad and sometimes I can be for someone I don’t even know. I feel for people.

“I don’t think I would get as emotional for myself if I won the Olympics than I would if one of my best friends won the Olympics.

“I’m also a pretty straight forward person. I don’t like to beat around the bush. I prefer to tell people what I’m thinking or how I’m feeling so we can move past an issue. My family are like that. They talk a lot and always have a very open communication. I sometimes need to remember that away from family and in the real world that doesn’t always happen.”

3. I love reality TV

“I like entertainment and for me drama and reality TV is part of it. I focus so much on track and planning for such a large portion on my day, if I sit down and watch a show like Keeping up with the Kardashians or The Bachelor I literally don’t have to focus at all. I can sit there, shut my brain down and be entertained by the ridiculousness of the TV shows.

“I like to watch the Sunday night show, which I often tape and watch later in the week, and I religiously watch the Monday night show. Some people see filming a very rich family who blow money like crazy as boring, but the drama is fascinating to me.”
