Caitlyn Jenner is on the cover of the latest issue of Sports Illustrated magazine.

The magazine cover was done as a 40-year anniversary of her huge 1976 win of an Olympic Gold Medial.

The star proudly poses with the gold medal she won with a stunning decathlon victory at the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games – with the SI cover marking the first time she’s had the medal around her neck in 40 years.

Speaking about why she posted with the medal after 40 years she says “It’s a picture that brings attention to this issue. That’s the important thing. That’s why I wore the medal.”

In addition to the magazine cover story by Senior Writer Tim Layden, SI Films has premiered a 22-minute film online looking back at Jenner’s win and where she is now.

According to Caitlyn, “her work now as a transgender advocate has more meaning for her than athletic glory.”

      Sally, stop speaking for all Africans. You are not the mother of all Africans. There are Africans that are Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Bisexual, Intersex and Queer but because of people like you making general statements like you speak for all of humanity, they don’t want to speak out. I may not agree with people’s life choices but there’s no need to discredit or talk them down. We all have equal rights irrespective of our sexual orientation

    Yinmu I wish I could limey our comment a thousand times. This confusion when scientists can’t dissect it they give it a name then human rights people will give it a right then media will give it a movement. As fela says teacher don’t teach me nonsense. I don’t advocate violence against any groups but this is white man confusion being given a platform. Some people want to sex dogs so they will soon tell us it is a human right as long as the dog isn’t carrying disease. Europeans do as u wish but do not push your confusion on us. Even simple referendum u can’t decide. U want to do how many elections first? Mm? Not everything oyinbo does is good ooh
