Transgender athlete Chris Mosier is being featured in a new Nike video, titled "Unlimited Courage," which depicts the athlete running, cycling and working out while explaining the uncertainty he faced while tirelessly working toward his goals. The video is part of a broader Nike campaign highlighting athletes who are pushing boundaries.
Moiser, who has competed in both duathlons and triathlons since 2009, became the first openly transgender athlete to compete as part of a U.S. National Team after placing seventh in a 2015 duathlon.
"Every success that I’ve had since then has shown me that anything is really possible," Mosier said in a statement. "By not stopping myself, not limiting myself and just really going for it, I’ve learned a lot about myself and also had the opportunity to further the conversation on trans inclusion in sports."
"Chris’s passion and achievements inspired us to both tell his story and inspire athletes everywhere to push beyond their limits," a Nike spokesperson told NBC OUT via email. "We are committed to diversity and inclusion and support a level playing field for all athletes."
Mosier said being the first transgender man on a U.S. National Team was a "dream come true" for him.
"I always wanted my name on a jersey," Mosier added. "To represent our country at the highest level, in my sport, is just outstanding. It’s just such an amazing opportunity — and an amazing opportunity for other people to see themselves reflected in someone succeeding in sports as a trans man."
