Caitlyn Jenner poses with the gold medal she won in the decathlon at the 1976 Montreal Olympic games on the cover of the new Sports Illustrated magazine cover.

Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, who keeps the medal in her nail drawer, tells SI in the article that she used to let her children take the medal to show-and-tell in school.

"You know what it's good for? Show and tell. It was a big hit at show and tell with all the kids growing up," said Jenner, 66.


The reality star and transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner, who has been denounced for her politics by the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, visited a high school in Brooklyn with Nicholas Kristof to meet some of her critics.
