Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner’s Lake Tahoe Olympic Torch on Auction


Jenner at Ceasers Tahoe

Caitlyn Jenner was part of the 1984 Olympic Torch Relay around Lake Tahoe. Caitlyn carried the torch from Nevada across the state line into California. Jenner became a celebrated athlete for winning the Gold Medal in the Decathlon at the 1976 Montreal Olympics.

Robert Lorsch, the executive who orchestrated the Tahoe Leg of the relay, was able to acquire Caitlyn’s torch as a keepsake. The flame darkened torch symbolizes athletic competition and international brotherhood. The original black leather vinyl carrying case is included with the purchase.


Heritage Auctions is offering the torch at their Platinum Night Sports Auction in Chicago on July 30. The opening bid is $5,500 dollars and is expected to sell for $20,000 dollars. Bids can be taken online.

Caitlyn Jenner will receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPY Awards show on July 15.

A new documentary series called “I Am Cait”, depicting Jenner’s transition to a woman will air July 26.

    1. I picked up Bruse Jenner when he had an accident with his dirt bike in lake Tahoe.i dropped him off at his lake front home. This was before we had cell phones
      . all I remember is he was gracious for the help and I was beside myself checking out his hot legs. I wonder if he remembers that day my husband and I picked him up. I remember his home was next to a Lake front restaurant. He invited us in and we met his wife. Great people. I lived in Truckee at the time.. I would love to hear from him to see if he remembers that
      Day. I will never forget it. Nice legs!!!!!!
