CAITLYN JENNER, born 1949, "formerly known as Bruce Jenner, is an American television personality and retired Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete.
Jenner was a college football player for the Graceland Yellowjackets before incurring a knee injury requiring surgery. Coach L. D. Weldon, who had coached
Olympic decathlete Jack Parker, convinced Jenner to try the decathlon. After intense training, Jenner won the 1976 Olympics decathlon title at the Montreal
Summer Olympics (after a Soviet athlete had won the title in 1972) during the Cold War, gaining fame as "an all-American hero". Jenner set a third successive
world record while winning the Olympics. The winner of the Olympic decathlon is traditionally given the unofficial title of "world's greatest athlete."
With that stature, Jenner subsequently established a career in television, film, authoring, as a Playgirl cover model, auto racing, and business." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caitlyn_Jenner (2016)
