Caitlyn Jenner To Mark Olympic Anniversary On SI Cover

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) Caitlyn Jenner will mark the 40th anniversary of her gold-medal Olympic win in the decathlon with a cover story in Sports Illustrated.

The magazine also will release a film June 8 on with Jenner visiting various stops along her Olympic journey, including the University of Oregon campus track, where she qualified for her first Olympics in 1972, and San Jose City College, where she trained for the 1976 games in Montreal, Sports Illustrated said in a statement Wednesday.

The magazine featuring Jenner on the cover hits newsstands June 8. Jenner, at the time Bruce Jenner, was featured on the SI cover in the Aug. 9, 1976, issue after winning gold. According to Us Weekly, Jenner will appear on the magazine's summer cover wearing "nothing but an American flag and her Olympic medal."

Last year, ESPN awarded Jenner the Arthur Ashe Courage Award after coming out as transgender.

"Trans people deserve something vital, they deserve your respect," Jenner said in her speech. "From that respect comes a more compassionate community."

Jenner currently stars on the E! reality show "I Am Cait."

It was another magazine, Vanity Fair, that debuted Jenner as a transgender woman last July.
