Waving the flag at the 1976 Olympics wasn't my idea. It was too much apple pie and ice cream. Not that I don't love my country, but I felt it was my victory up there, I put all the time into it.
"William Bruce Jenner" is a former U.S. track and field athlete and current motivational speaker, television personality, and businessman. He won the gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics held in Montreal.
Following Jenner's Olympic victory and the related recognition, his professional career led to new success in television. By 1981, he had starred in several made-for-TV movies and was Erik Estrada's replacement briefly on the top-rated TV series CHiPs. In 1991, he married Kris Jenner (née Houghton, previously Kardashian). Since the 2007 debut of the cable television reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, he is seen as the stepfather of the Kardashian siblings: Kourtney Kardashian/Kourtney, Kim Kardashian/Kim, Khloé Kardashian/Khloe, and Rob Kardashian as well as the father of Burt, Casey, Brandon Jenner/Brandon, Brody Jenner/Brody, Kendall Jenner/Kendall, and Kylie Jenner.If you enjoy these quotes, be sure to check out other famous athletes!

If you're going to dedicate every second to winning the decathlon, what are you doing wasting your time in bed?
I learned that the only way you are going to get anywhere in life is to work hard at it. Whether you're a musician, a writer, an athlete or a businessman, there is no getting around it. If you do, you'll win - if you don't, you won't.
Start early and begin raising the bar throughout the day.
If you want to take your mission in life to the next level, if you're stuck and you don't know how to rise, don't look outside yourself. Look inside. Don't let your fears keep you mired in the crowd. Abolish your fears and raise your commitment level to the point of no return, and I guarantee you that the Champion Within will burst forth to propel you toward victory.
I spent twelve years training for a career that was over in a week. Joe Namath spent one week training for a career that lasted twelve years.
To me, the definition of focus is knowing exactly where you want to be today, next week, next month, next year, then never deviating from your plan. Once you can see, touch and feel your objective, all you have to do is pull back and put all your strength behind it, and you'll hit your target every time.
