Caitlyn Jenner Early Life
William Bruce Jenner was the name given to Caitlyn Marie Jenner when she was born on October 28, 1949 in Mount Kisco, New York. Her parents are Esther Ruth and William Hugh Jenner, and she has ancestry that can be traced back to England, Scotland, Wales, the Netherlands, and Ireland. Jenner received her high school diploma in 1968 from both Sleepy Hollow High School in New York and Newton High School in Newton, Connecticut, where she studied.
Despite having difficulties with reading and writing, Jenner was able to receive a football scholarship to Graceland College. However, because of a knee injury, she was unable to continue playing the game. Jenner’s talent was spotted by her coach at Graceland, who urged her to switch to prepare for the decathlon instead of the heptathlon. At the Drake Relays held in Des Moines, Iowa, she competed in the decathlon and ended up finishing sixth.
Caitlyn Jenner Career
Jenner took part in the Olympic trials that were held in Eugene, Oregon in 1972. Jenner was in fifth place going into the final race, and he needed to make up a margin of 19 seconds in the men’s 1500-meter race in order to win. She was able to make it onto the squad as a result of her incredible last lap performance, in which she finished 22 seconds ahead of the other runners. After the competitions, Jenner ended up coming in tenth place in the decathlon at the 1972 Olympics, which were held in Munich.
Following his graduation from college in 1973, Jenner wed Chrystie Crownover, a flight attendant, and the couple relocated to San Jose, California together. Jenner made ends meet by selling insurance at night in order to continue his training during the day at San Jose City College and San Jose State University’s respective running tracks.
After Jenner’s victory in the American championships in the men’s decathlon event in 1974, the publication Track & Field News chose to put him on the cover in August of that year.
She also triumphed in the next year’s competition for the French national championship and took home the gold medal in the Pan American Games. At this moment in time, she was breaking new records all around the world. Jenner competed in 13 decathlons between 1973 and 1976, with only one of them ending in a loss.
On the first day of the men’s decathlon at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, Jenner scored five personal bests with his performance.
Jenner finished that year’s Olympic competition with the gold medal and a new world record score of 8,618 points, which he set throughout the competition. Following the competition, Jenner demanded and received from a fan an American flag, which he then carried with him around the track for the victory lap, so initiating a practise that is now typical among Olympians who take home the gold medal.
After winning the gold medal, Jenner was hailed as a national hero and was presented with the James E. Sullivan Award, which is given to the best amateur athlete in the United States. In addition to this, the Associated Press honoured her as their Male Athlete of the Year in 1976. Jenner’s world record and Olympic record from 1976 were both beaten by Daley Thompson in the 1980 Olympics in Moscow. Thompson smashed Jenner’s record by four points.
Jenner’s brother Burt was sadly died in a vehicle accident not long after she achieved glory in the Olympics.

Jenner told Diane Sawyer on the show “20/20” in April 2015 that she had the soul of a woman and that she was a trans woman. Jenner showed the public her new name and look later that year. In July 2015, she legally changed her name to Caitlyn Marie Jenner. Jenner had surgery to change her gender in January 2017, which was the last step in her transition. Jenner now talks movingly about her journey, and in June 2015, she told the public about her change on the cover of Vanity Fair Magazine.
