How many gold medals does bruce jenner have?

Bruce Jenner (born William Bruce Jenner on October 28, 1949 in Mount Kisco, New York) has a single gold medal. He took the gold at the Summer Olympics in 1976 in Montreal with a world record setting 8,634 points (adjusted to current standards) in the decathlon.

Previously, Jenner placed 3rd in the Olympic trials of 1972, and was 10th at the Munich games in 1972.

Before taking his victory lap for the gold a fan handed him an American flag which he proudly carried through that lap; this gesture has been repeated ever since by winners at the games.

Although he made many appearances on TV over the years, and even an ill-fated movie attempt, he is best known these days as the husband of Kris Kardashian, and patriarch in the TV reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Right now Jenner is attending the Olympic games in London for the E! network; this will be his first time back at the games since 1996 in Atlanta, Georgia.
