In the 1970s, one of the most famous athletes in the world was Bruce Jenner.
At the 1976 Montreal Summer Olympics, Jenner competed in Track and field, and won a gold medal in the decathlon.
From the late 1970s and into the '80s, Jenner's smiling, "All-American" face appeared on many magazine covers and also the front of the wheaties cereal box, which at the time, indicated a sports player had achieved true fame.
He also made appearances in TV dramas such as "The Love Boat" which were popular at the time.
Jenner kept a "low profile" during the 1990s, although his wife Kris Jenner became rather famous in her own right. After she later divorced Bruce, she married lawyer Robert Kardashian, and had several daughters with him.
She and her daughters became big stars in the 2000s as their reality TV show, "Keeping up with the Kardashians" was a huge hit. (G.K)
