In the 1976 Summer Olympic Games, US athlete Bruce Jenner captured international headlines after winning the gold medal for the decathlon. Now, almost 40 years later, the Olympian has made world-wide news again by telling the story of a personal transgender transformation.
In honor of this journey, Jenner has adopted the new female first name, Caitlyn. According to Patrick Sandusky, spokesperson for the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC), the organization would consider substituting the name Bruce with Caitlyn on all official records, if a formal request by the athlete is made.
