we've been down this road before; Jenner's training/support (by the time '76 rolled around) was close to equal to what anybody has today.


lets just take some time and explore that road... It should be clear that 1 year of training/support (before your PR/WR) is not quite like having 4 to 8 years at that level of training/support.

It is still hard to fathom that nothing has changed in training for the Deca .. in 40 years.

The problem is the Southern CA sun. Fair skinned people go out there and love to lounge around in the noon day rays. The result: by the time they are 40 they look 60 !!... Jenner like all of the wealthy hollywood types, has been using a cosmetic surgeon to smooth out that extra 20 years. The results are to be expected.

That depends on whose wielding the trowel.

Yes on the second note, but Jenner moved to San Jose right after the 1972 Olympics and had 4 years of training. He was working on sprinting with the sprinters in San Jose, and I think lifted with Mac Wilkins and Al Feuerbach, so his training was pretty advanced - and was so for 4 years prior Montreal.

The problem is the SoCal live-forever mindset. Bruce started having structural changes done to his face (not his skin) within a year or so of heading to la-la land.

I was the announcer of the Jenner Classic for more than a decade and he and I used to get together multiple times every year and saw it firsthand. The sun had nothing to do with it.

How would many of us fare if we were to show the changes in our appearance over 40 years?

Just got this tweet:

Dave Barry ‏@rayadverb 37m

That last tweet was specifically about Bruce Jenner's trachea. And if you don't know what I mean, THAT IS MY POINT.

"The 64-year-old reportedly met with a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon on Thursday for a consultation regarding the procedure, known as chondrolaryngoplasty (or tracheal shave), reports TMZ."

I was 7 forty years ago, so there might be a few changes...

I used the same head-shot for about 20 years, but then I out-smarted myself and shaved my mustache. Now I have a new pic and he looks soooooo old! :D

Apparently, it is indeed over, at least for now.

Then again, maybe it's not over.
