Do You Know This Man?
Would you be surprised to know that 42 percent of those surveyed under the age of 40 couldn’t identify a 1976 photo of Olympic decathlon champ (and reality show star) Bruce Jenner?
That’s right — before “The Kardashians,” the opulent Hollywood lifestyle, numerous plastic surgeries and a TV/movie career whose high point was replacing Erik Estrada on CHiPs, Bruce Jenner was an Olympic gold medal winner!
After placing 10th in the decathlon at the Munich Games in 1972, Jenner was the favorite heading to Montreal in ’76. He didn’t disappoint, winning the gold and setting Olympic and world records in the process. All that long before Kris, Kim, et al. came along, and just about 36 years ago to the day!
