The Olympic champion-turned-reality star is set to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine wearing only “an American flag and her Olympic medal” reports surfaced Friday.
Via Us Weekly:
Caitlyn Jenner will appear on a summer cover of Sports Illustrated wearing “nothing but an American flag and her Olympic medal,” a source reveals in the latest issue of Us Weekly.
The 66-year-old I Am Cait star (formerly known as Bruce) set a world decathlon record at the 1976 Montreal Summer Games. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of her win, she’ll pose with her gold medal for the first time post-transition, adds the source: “She’s excited about that.” (Her ex-wife Kris appeared topless with a medal during a 2007 photo shoot on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.)
Until now, Jenner says, she had stashed her “most prized possession” at the bottom of her makeup drawer.
Apparently Caitlyn didn’t want to have it around so the kids wouldn’t be intimidated.
“I never wanted my kids to feel like they had to have a gold medal in order to be considered a success,” the father of Kylie, 18, Kendall, 20, Brody, 32, Brandon, 34, Casey, 35, and Burt, 37, wrote in an August 2015 blog post“I didn’t want them to constantly compare their own achievements to my time in the Olympics, so I haven’t displayed my medal.”
Jenner, who at the time was known as Bruce, became an American sports icon and was splashed across media, even earning a spot on the front of the Wheaties box.
How about this for her next Wheaties box?
