It will be the first time the former athlete will pose with her gold medal since the bombshell July 2015 Vanity Fair profile in which Jenner came out as transgender. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the 66-year-old’s world decathlon record at the 1976 Montreal Summer Games; a source told Us Weekly, “She’s excited about that.”READ MORE: Video: Howling Atmospheric River Winds Making Golden Gate Bridge Sing
Jenner refers to the medal as her “most prized possession,” but has said that she tries not to flaunt it because she never wanted her children to feel overshadowed by her achievements.
Since coming out, Jenner has become a highly visible figure in the trans community, most recently talking about her right to use women’s restrooms and working on a guest spot on the Amazon drama “Transparent.”
