Early Life

Born to Ruth and William Hugh Jenner, Caitlyn Jenner has a diverse ancestry that includes English, Scottish, Irish, Dutch, and Welsh roots.

Tragically, her younger brother Burt’s life was cut short in a car accident soon after her Olympic triumph. 

Despite being diagnosed with dyslexia as a child, Jenner overcame academic obstacles and excelled in sports.

She showcased her athletic abilities in various activities such as water skiing, football, basketball, and track.

In pursuit of her passion for football, she earned a scholarship to Graceland College in Iowa but faced setbacks due to a knee injury. 

After recognizing her exceptional talent and potential, Jenner’s college track coach suggested she transition to the challenging decathlon event.

Making this switch was a turning point in Jenner’s athletic career, as it marked the start of her path toward achieving Olympic success and glory. 

This decision ultimately allowed Jenner to showcase her versatility and exceptional skills across multiple disciplines, solidifying her status as one of the greatest athletes of all time.


Following her 1968 graduation from Newtown High School in Connecticut, Caitlyn Jenner continued her education at Graceland College (now known as Graceland University) in Iowa on a football scholarship, showcasing her athletic abilities. Unfortunately, a knee injury altered her path, leading her to transition to track and field.

Despite her challenges, Caitlyn Jenner persevered and successfully graduated from Graceland in 1973, marking the beginning of an impressive athletic career that would eventually culminate with a gold medal win in the 1976 Olympics.


Caitlyn Jenner’s professional journey can be broken down into three significant periods. From 1969 to 1976, the first phase saw her transition from college football to the decathlon due to a knee injury.

From 1977 to 2015, she utilized her athletic renown to transition into the media and business world, showcasing her talents in television commercials, movies, and as a sports analyst.

Additionally, she authored multiple books and delved into diverse business endeavors such as auto racing and inspirational speaking engagements.

In 2015, Caitlyn Jenner made headlines when she publicly came out as a transgender woman and revealed her new name to the world.
