Decathlon gold-medalist Caitlyn Jenner recently sat down with H&M for a moving “Greatest Victories” video, where she looks back on her time in the Olympics to transitioning into a woman.
The video comes in light of the upcoming summer Olympics 2016. Caitlyn—who also has a sportswear collab with H&M—recounts the time she discovered athletic potential and winning the Olympic gold medal in 1976. The gold medal, she says, is now being kept in a nail polish drawer.
She went on to say her greatest accomplishments are her kids and being brave enough to go through her transition and be herself.
“The shoot with Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair… I looked in the mirror and thought, ‘This is the first time I’m ever seeing myself,” she says. “This Caitlyn character is a lot more interesting, and that’s when I decided that I had to live my life as Caitlyn. That’s the greatest victory of all: To wake up in the morning and just be yourself.”[Nylon]
