Caitlyn Jenner: what’s your story?

The Olympic champion and transgender activist on winning and losing.

She’s the most famous transgender woman in the world. Today she’s best known for being part the Kardashian-Jenner dynasty, but at one time she was most famous for being the world’s greatest athlete after winning gold in the decathlon in the 1976 Olympics, competing as Bruce Jenner. In 2015 she transitioned and renamed herself Caitlyn. We may be seeing a lot more of her as it’s rumoured she is this year’s big signing in ITV’s I'm A Celebrity.

We speak to Simon Mundie, who presents the BBC Sounds sport podcast Don’t Tell Me the Score. Simon went to meet Caitlyn at her home in Malibu where she told him about the moment she won gold, transitioning and why she’s happier now than ever before.
