Caitlyn Jenner has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, but she doesn’t look how we expected.
When news first broke that Jenner would be featured on the cover of the magazine’s ‘Where Are They Now?’ issue, it was thought she would be wearing her gold medal and an American flag… and nothing else.
Now the cover has finally been revealed, showing Caitlyn proudly wearing the gold medal she won in the 1976 Olympic Games around her neck.

It’s the first time she’s worn the medal since she won the decathlon and set a world record at the Montreal Summer Olympics. It’s also the first time she’s worn it since transitioning.
The former Olympian opened up about how she felt about her body while competing as Bruce Jenner.
“It disgusted me. I was big and thick and masculine. The rest of the world thought it was this Greek god kind of body. I hated it,” she said.
