Olympics records say Bruce Jenner won the decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, but that could soon change. The U.S. Olympic Committee said on Saturday that it is willing to revise the record to show Caitlyn Jenner as the official winner.
“We admire Caitlyn Jenner’s courage and wish her all the best,” USOC spokesperson Patrick Sandusky told Us Weekly in a statement, referring to Jenner’s decision to come out as transgender. “We would happily consider any athlete’s request to have his or her personal information updated in our records.”
It is unclear whether this is something Jenner, 65, is interested in, however.
The former athlete turned reality television star debuted her new look on the cover of Vanity Fair this week. In previous interviews, Jenner has said she is proud of her past accomplishments, which include winning the gold medal in the 1976 Olympics and being inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame 10 years later.
