Detailed Biography of Bruce Jenner
In 1976, Bruce Jenner captured the world’s attention as he sprinted, jumped and leapt his way to a gold medal in the grueling decathlon in the Summer Olympic Games in Montreal, Canada. The medal meant ever more to Americans because it had been an event won by an athlete from the former USSR during the previous installment of the Olympic Games.
Born in Tarrytown, New York, Bruce Jenner appearances in the athletic realm were initially centered around the sport of football. It was not until a knee injury in college ended his football career that he began training for the decathlon. The first Bruce Jenner appearance in the Olympic Games took place at the 1972 Summer Games in Munich, Germany, at which he finished in tenth. Afterward, he began training vigorously. His dedication paid off when a Bruce Jenner appearance in the 1972 Summer Olympic Games in Montreal, Canada, resulted in a gold medal and a world record in points. Subsequently, Bruce Jenner appearances included receiving several awards like the James E. Sullivan Award, the Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year Award and induction into the Olympic Hall of Fame, the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame, the Connecticut Sports Hall of Fame and the United States National Track and Field Hall of Fame.
Today, Bruce Jenner appearances have gotten the attention of a new generation as the stepfather of Khloe, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian on the E! Network hit reality series “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
Winning a decathlon requires a great deal of training, diversity and stamina. During a Bruce Jenner motivational speaking engagement, he can share his story of how he managed to achieve a gold medal in such a grueling event while also sharing his story of overcoming dyslexia.
