Former athlete, Caitlyn Jenner, is on the cover of this month’s Sports Illustrated magazine wearing her Olympic gold medal, 40 years after winning the decathlon at the Montreal Games.
Dressed in a sequined jumpsuit (and not nude as previously rumoured), Caitlyn appears relaxed and comfortable on the cover. In the exclusive Sports Illustrated interview, Caitlyn confessed that she keeps her medal safely in her nail drawer and opened up about why she wore the medal on the cover.
“It’s a picture that brings attention to this issue. That’s the important thing. That’s why I wore the medal.”
In an accompanying 22-minute documentary titled Jenner: 40 Years After Gold, Caitlyn reflects on her athletic past and her tumultuous, yet triumphant journey from celebrated Olympic medallist to Glamour magazine’s Woman of the Year.
“I loved Bruce,” She told Sports Illustrated. “I still love him today. I like what he did and the way he set an example for hard work and dedication. I’m proud of that part of my life. But this woman was living inside me, all my life, and it reached the point where I had to let her live and put Bruce inside. And I am happier, these last 12 months, than I’ve ever been in my life.”
