Caitlyn Jenner Poses With Her Olympic Medal – Reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner has covered the July edition of Sports Illustrated magazine.
The issue, titled Where Are They Now, sees Jenner pose with the Olympic medal she won as Bruce Jenner in the 1976 Olympics.
“The decathlon for me was the ultimate in what people think of as manhood,” Jenner says in the interview. “So for me it was a good place to hide. I had a need to prove myself, that maybe that woman that’s living inside of me really isn’t living there.”
“I loved what I was doing,” Jenner said. “I was the best in the world at what I did. But I knew [the 1976 Games] would be the last time. I kept thinking, ‘Hold on to the moment, hold on to the moment. Remember this moment, it’s going to be over so quickly. You’ve got a long life to live after this.'”
“I was throwing out my past like it never happened,”Jenner continued. “And I’m very proud of those times. This was a big part of my past. It’s part of my life, it made me who I am.”
Jenner had previously appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated shortly after she won the medal in 1976. Check her new cover out below!
