American athlete and superstar who won the U.S. Gold Medal in the Decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada. Jenner, an all-round sports figure races powerboats and mountain bikes. He received awards for water-skiing in 1966, 1969 and 1971. His willingness to try anything once has led him to broadcasting, acting and owning his own business. In 1996, Jenner participated in a two-week road rally through Africa driving a Hummer all-terrain vehicle.
As a dyslexic child Jenner suffered problems in the classroom. In third grade his biggest fear was reading in front of his class. He lost all interest in school work and became a star athlete to overcompensate for his low self-esteem. Frustrated by his poor grades, he would challenge the smart boys to races. In high school he became a pole vaulter and high jump champion, also winning the water-skiing championships in the large Eastern U.S. competition. He was given a full scholarship to Graceland College in Iowa by the Mormon Church where his college coach felt that Jenner's athletic strengths were in participating in many track and field events. He encouraged the young athlete to practice for the decathlon.
In 1972, Jenner finished in tenth place in the Olympic decathlon in Munich. He went all out training for the 1976 Games in Montreal. Living on $9,000 a year, Jenner sold insurance and drove an old '63 Volkswagen. He and his wife Chrystie lived in a $145-a-month apartment. By 1976, his whole life revolved around the Olympics as he obsessed about winning and trained eight hours a day. He made it, he won! On 7/30/1976, Jenner won the Decathlon event with the highest points ever received in the category at that time. General Mills placed his image on their Wheatie's Cereal Box and the flag-waving Jenner became forever etched on the American consciousness. Jenner was uncomfortable with such a patriotic image since the Vietnam war and protest demonstrations were still fresh to the American public. Today, American sport figures immediately wrap themselves in the American flag when running their victory lap around the track.
After conquering the Olympics, Jenner set out to make up for lost time by participating in activities others only read about in newspapers and books. In 1978, he received his pilot's license and bought a 1978 Beechcroft Bonanza A-36. He became an entrepreneur with his company, Bruce Jenner Aircraft, in which he brokers private planes to executives. He became a member of the ABC broadcasting team by guest hosting TV morning show, "Good Morning, America," and delivering color commentary for the ABC sports division. He has authored several books and travels the lecture circuit as a motivational speaker. He is a pitchman for his fitness products on TV info-mercials. In 1980, he starred with the Village People in the disco turkey of the year, "Can't Stop the Music." Amazingly his career survived the flick, but filmmakers are not phoning his agent for his next movie role.
In his first marriage to Chrystie Jenner, he had two children; one born in 1978 and one in 1981. The children were born after his Olympic success and he soon became an absent father. His divorce from his first wife became a media mess in the California courts in 1981. At the time, he was dating a former girl-friend of Elvis Presley, Linda Thompson whom he met at a celebrity tennis tournament in 1980. In 1981, he married Linda and they had two children, Brandon in 1982 and Sam in 1984. Thompson filed for divorce in 1986 because of her husband's frequent absences from the home front. Jenner met his third wife, Kris, the former wife of Robert Kardashian, attorney and confident of O.J.Simpson, at Magic Johnson's charity Golf Tournament in 1990. The couple met on a blind date arranged by baseball player Steve Garvey's wife, Candace. It was love at first sight and they married five months later at Terry Siemel, the president of Warner Brothers home in 1990. The couple had their first child together in 1995, Kendall Nichole, and their second child on 8/10/1997, Kylie Kristen. The Jenner's live in a house in Beverly Hills with their ten children. His wife, Kris runs the Jenner business venture with infomercials selling Jenner products in 17 languages. Jenner has become more involved with his children, changing diapers and getting the kids ready for school.
Trim and tanned, Jenner travels around the country on the lecture circuit displaying his relentless enthusiasm in his motivational speeches to company executives. He likes to be seen as impeccably groomed when he makes appearances before the public. For philanthropy, he actively raises funds for dyslexia foundations.
Bruce and his wife, Kris were good friends of Nicole Brown and O.J. Simpson. Since the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson, the Jenner's have cut ties to the Simpson family.
