Caitlyn Jenner to feature on Sports Illustrated

Caitlyn Jenner is preparing for her appearance on Sports illustrated.

It will mark the 40th anniversary of Bruce Jenner's win at the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games. Bruce was featured on an edition of the magazine that year with his gold medal and will return 40 years later as Caitlyn.

According to People Magazine, there were reports that Caitlyn would pose nude for the image but Sports Illustrated said that this was inaccurate.

Managing Editor Chris Stone told them, "We go into these shoots with an open mind and allow our photographers to explore these stories. Forty years ago, Caitlyn Jenner offered one of the great athletic feats in modern era.

"We needed an image that connects both who Caitlyn Jenner is now and what she accomplished 40 years ago as Bruce Jenner, and the image that you see on the cover next week reflects that."

Some footage from the behind the scenes of the shoot have been released online:
