Caitlyn Jenner is about to mix the old, er rather the gold, with the new.
A new report in Us Weekly says that Caitlyn is set to appear on a summer cover of Sports Illustrated wearing "nothing but an American flag and her Olympic medal."
The transgender star won a gold medal and set a world decathlon record at the 1976 Montreal Summer Games while competing as Bruce Jenner. This summer will mark the 40th anniversary of that historic win.
It will be the first time since the highly-publicized transition that she will pose with the medal.
"She's excited about that," a source tells the celebrity magazine.
In August, Caitlyn said the gold medal was her "most prized possession," but she didn't display it in her home, rather keeping it at the bottom of a drawer in her makeup room as to not put pressure on her six children and four step children.
"I never wanted my kids to feel like they had to have a gold medal in order to be considered a success," she said. "I didn't want them to constantly compare their own achievements to my time in the Olympics, so I haven't displayed my medal."
In an accompanying video on the Huffington Post, Caitlyn showed off the medal in her makeup room.
"I'm very proud of this," the "I am Cait" star said. "That was a great time in my life. But to be honest with you, it's even a greater time in my life right now with what I'm trying to accomplish."
Since she revealed her identity in Vanity Fair in July 2015, Caitlyn has settled into her new life.
"But you know, I think that I really want her to be happy and be really comfortable in all the things where she says she wasn't her true authentic self for most of her life and knew when she was 4 that she felt like that," Kris told Ellen DeGeneres.
"So you don't want somebody to be miserable or in pain or anything like that. I think for me, just getting used to that, you know I am human and I have my feelings and I try and it's baby steps. And it's the mourning of somebody that you feel you are never going to be with or see again."
