Caitlyn Jenner wears Olympic gold medal on SI cover
Caitlyn Jenner posed on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated wearing her decathlon gold medal won at the 1976 Olympics.
Of course, Jenner’s life has changed dramatically since those two days in Montreal 40 years ago.
“What did I do for the world in 1976, besides maybe getting a few people to exercise a little bit?” Jenner said in the SI cover story. “I didn’t make a difference in the world.”
She views the medal, which she has never put on display, and the achievement much differently now.
“I loved Bruce,” Jenner said, according to the magazine. “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.”
