Then Bruce, now Caitlyn Jenner won a 1976 Olympic gold medal for the decathlon with a world record score in the prestigious 10-discipline event. His success was emblemized in Wheaties commercials, public appearances and soon Jenner became a household name. It wasn’t long before the Olympian tried out acting in 1981 on the TV drama, “CHiPs” and even appeared as himself on shows like “Silver Spoons.”
In recent years, Jenner appeared regularly on E! Entertainment’s reality show, “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” featuring his widely famous step daughters, Khloe, Kim and Kourtney. Last year, the girls’ mother Kris Jenner and Bruce filed for divorce. Since that time, Bruce Jenner underwent a sexual transition, officially becoming Caitlyn Jenner.
Caitlyn has been widely celebrated for her bravery in undergoing the transition in the public eye. Despite the celebrations and newfound freedom of identity for Jenner, the aftermath of a tragic collision in February of this year is still unfolding.
