    The interview is amazing (50% through now). I only wish T&F had a star with commercial qualities like Bruce back in the day. I think that this is a monumental moment.

    After I watched the 400m video, a 28-minute story about Jenner's Montreal exploits came up, "Ten For Gold". That is a very good watch and shows all ten events.
