Caitlyn Marie Jenner is an American television personality and retired Olympic gold medal–winning decathlete. Jenner played college football for the Graceland Yellowjackets before incurring a knee injury that required surgery. Convinced by Olympic decathlete Jack Parker's coach, L. D. Weldon, to try the decathlon, Jenner culminated a six-year decathlon career by winning the men's decathlon event at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, setting a third successive world record and gaining fame as "an all-American hero". Given the unofficial title of "world's greatest athlete", Jenner established a career in television, film, writing, auto racing, business, and as a Playgirl cover model.

She had two sons, Brody and Brandon, with Linda Thompson before marrying Kris Jenner in 1991. She and Kris had two daughters, Kendall and Kylie, then divorced in early 2015. Caitlyn also has a son named Burt and a daughter named Casey from her first marriage to Chrystie Crownover.
