LOS ANGELES — Caitlyn Jenner has filed papers to make her transition official.

The Olympic gold medalist, who was formerly Bruce Jenner, filed a name- and gender-change petition Tuesday in Los Angeles. Citing threats she received, she is seeking a private hearing to officially change her name to Caitlyn Marie Jenner and gender to female.

Jenner, 65, is seeking the change “to better match my identity,” the filing says.

It was released Wednesday so a judge could consider Jenner’s request to file portions of the application under seal.

Some details in the released petition were redacted after Jenner’s attorneys sought to keep certain personal details private, citing concerns about threats made against her.

Jenner signed the document using her birth name, William Bruce Jenner, last week.

Jenner won a gold medal in the men’s decathlon at the 1976 Olympics and was married to Kris Jenner, mother to the Kardashian sisters, for more than 20 years.

Jenner appeared on their reality series, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and has documented her transition on her own reality series, “I Am Cait.”

Los Angeles prosecutors are still considering whether to file a criminal case against Jenner over a February traffic collision on the Pacific Coast Highway that left one woman dead.

Investigators determined that Jenner was traveling at an unsafe speed at the time.
