Caitlyn Jenner will mark the 40th anniversary of her Olympic gold medal win in the decathlon with a cover story in Sports Illustrated.

The magazine will also release a film on June 6 on SI.com 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.

The magazine featuring Jenner on the cover will hit newsstands on June 8.

Jenner, at the time Bruce Jenner, was featured on the SI cover in the August 9 1976 issue after winning gold.

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