Former U.S track and field athlete Bruce Jenner begs to disagree with Usain Bolt, saying that the Jamaican sprinter is not the “greatest athlete of all time” compared to what the athlete put in his Twitter page.
According to reports, 62-year-old Bruce Jenner — who took home the gold medal in the decathlon during the 1976 Olympic Games — was leaving LAX this weekend when media outlet TMZ spotted him and asked him about the declaration made by Usain Bolt about his greatness after he dominated the 2012 London Olympics last week.
“He’s the best sprinter,” Jenner said of Bolt, adding, “He can’t pole vault, he can’t throw anything … that’s an athlete.”
Bruce Jenner made it quite clear that he believes decathletes rank the highest when deciding about the “most athletic.” When asked if Usain Bolt would be able to compete in his sport, Bruce did not hold back and responded, “He would be terrible.”
Following his Olympic victory and the related recognition, Jenner’s professional career evolved into being a television celebrity. By 1981, he had already appeared in various made-for-TV movies and was even made Erik Estrada’s replacement on the top rated TV series “CHiPs” where he first guest-starred as Officer Steve McLeish. Since the 2007 debut of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” Bruce Jenner has appeared as the stepfather to the Kardashian siblings: Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob; and the father of Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
