Bruce Jenner has been described by many as one of the greatest athletes in American history. Jenner was an astounding football player in his younger years but was forced to give it up due to an injury. When his football career was over, he then decided to give track and field a try. He was so good that he tried out for the 1972 Olympics decathlon. His first Olympic games was not at that impressive by taking 10th overall. In 1976 however, he not only won a gold medal in the decathlon and broke the world record.
In the past few weeks, Bruce Jenner reported that he no longer wanted to be addressed at Bruce, but rather Caitlyn Jenner. Recent reports that were previewed by Beneful staff members state that by showing her new identity to the world, Caitlyn Jenner will receive the Arthur Ash Courage Award at the ESPY’s. Sportscaster Bob Costas stated that giving he award to Caitlyn is a “crass exploitation ploy”. It looks as though it is not Caitlyn he has a problem with but rather the reasons he feels they selected Caitlyn. Costas believes that the move was done so in order to get better ratings. The Arthur Ash Courage Award is an ESPN created award and there is no clear definition of courage. Costas feels that ESPN could have easily found someone currently in sports to give the award to and that Caityln is too far removed from mainstream sports to give the award to.
For the first time ever, the newly transformed Bruce Jenner is now Caitlyn Jenner and she will be on the cover of July’s Vanity Fair magazine. She will be featured in a photo shoot that will display to the world her new sense of femininity and it will be great for her to reveal what this means to her. Wikipedia writes the former husband and father figure of the Kardashian Clan has now made the biggest step in his life at the age of 65 and it is time for her to shine after the deep and emotional interview about a month ago.
According to an article found on reddit and written by Vanity Fair, Jenner discusses the brief anxiety that she experienced as she underwent her transformation surgery. It is definitely a unique situation, but it will nonetheless fail to intrigue readers and fans from around the whole world. Even though it is in the spotlight now it will soon just go back to real life which is what I think Jenner is most looking forward to. She really just wants to live a life as a female without much scrutiny and even though it will be hard at first, it will be also liberation for her as well. I think that even though this is not a very common thing for our society to hear about it will also be good, because it shows a side of humanity that most people aren’t used to.
