Caitlyn Jenner, known as Bruce Jenner until 2015, achieved fame as an all-American hero in the world of athletics. Convinced by Olympic decathlete Jack Parker’s coach, L. D. Weldon, to try the decathlon, Jenner embarked on a six-year decathlon career.

Her journey culminated in a remarkable victory at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, where she won the men’s decathlon event and set a third successive world record. This achievement catapulted her to national prominence.

During her decathlon career, Jenner achieved several milestones:

  • American championship win in the men’s decathlon event in 1974.

  • A gold medal at the Pan American Games.
  • Setting new world records between 1973 and 1976.

Her success made her a national hero, and she received accolades such as the James E. Sullivan Award (given to the top amateur athlete in the United States) and being named the Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year in 1976.

Personal Life Of Caitlyn Jenner

Jenner has been married three times, first to Chrystie Crownover from 1972 to 1981. The two share a son and a daughter. Jenner was married to Linda Thompson from 1981 to 1986, and they have two sons together.

On April 21, 1991, Jenner and Kris Kardashian got married after just five months of dating. They have two daughters together, Kendall and Kylie. Jenner was also the step-parent to Kris’s children Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Robert from her previous marriage, who all starred in “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Kris filed for divorce in September 2014.  They divorced in December of that year.

 

Jenner was involved in a fatal multi-car collision on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu in February 2015.

Transition to Caitlyn

Jenner cross-dressed and took hormone therapy treatments throughout her life but stopped after meeting Kris Kardashian. After she divorced Kris, she continued on her path toward becoming a woman.

In April 2015, Jenner sat down for an interview with Diane Sawyer on “20/20” to reveal that she had the soul of a female and that she was a trans woman. Later that year, Jenner debuted her new name and image to the public and legally changed her name to Caitlyn Marie Jenner in July 2015.

Caitlyn underwent sex reassignment surgery in January 2017, thus completing her transition. She now speaks movingly about her journey and publicly revealed her transition on the cover of “Vanity Fair” magazine in June 2015.

Following her transition, Jenner started a Twitter account, which reached one million followers in the Guinness World Record time of 4 hours and 3 minutes. By sharing her journey with the world, Caitlyn Jenner became a high-profile voice for the transgender community. She has been praised and honored for her courage and for sharing her story with the world.

The E! Network filmed an eight-part series about Jenner’s transition that aired following the reveal in “Vanity Fair.” For the Jenner children, the issue of the transition is a non-issue. They were already aware of their father’s identity as a woman when he told them individually about the transition prior to surgery, and all of them feel both happiness for their father and inspiration at Caitlyn’s bravery.

Caitlyn Jenner : TV Career

Caitlyn Jenner gained further prominence through her appearances on the reality TV show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” which documented the lives of the Kardashian-Jenner family.

 

Her involvement in the show contributed significantly to her public profile and financial success. Additionally, she starred in her own reality show, “I Am Cait,” which chronicled her transition and advocacy for transgender rights. These television ventures undoubtedly contributed to her overall net worth.
