These days Caitlyn Jenner may be making more headlines as a voice for transgender rights, her famous family and her TV show, but it wasn鈥檛 so long ago she took home gold for USA at the 1976 Olympics. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of her gold-medal win, Caitlyn will be posing for Sports Illustrated 鈥 but you won鈥檛 be seeing her sport聽a swimsuit or casual-cool聽athleisure wear for this occasion. Caitlyn will be posing in nothing but her gold medal and the American flag.

Back in 1976, Caitlyn set a world decathlon record at the Montreal Summer Games, and in a blog post for the Huffington Post said of the gold medal she earned, 鈥淚鈥檓 very proud of this. That was a great time in my life. But to be honest with you, it鈥檚 even a greater time in my life right now with what I鈥檓 trying to accomplish.鈥

Now, no stranger to groundbreaking magazine spreads, Caitlyn鈥檚 2015 appearance in Vanity Fair was one of the most buzzed about cover pics in the mag鈥檚 history. But this time around, the 66-year-old will be posing in the buff. We get the feeling Caitlyn鈥檚 taking a cue from her stepdaughter Kim and there will be some Internet-breaking.

A gold medal and a draped flag won鈥檛 cover much, but there鈥檚 no doubt that Caitlyn and her style team will come up with something epic.
