Interview with trans triathlete Chris Mosier

ChicagoPride.com features this interview with Chris Mosier (see our previous post HERE):

This Sunday August 6th Chris Mosier will be one of over 3,000 athletes competing in the Nautica NYC Triathalon. It is an Olympic distance race consisting of a 1500m swim, 40k bike ride and a 10k run.

Chris is Odwella sponsored and he races on their Active Ambassadors team. This past March he entered a contest to win one of ten sponsorships by a world class fitness company known as TRX. There were over one hundred entries and Chris finished 6th.

What makes this triathlete unique is that Chris was once an MVP in women's sports. Chris a transman made the transition from female sports to male sports just a little over a year ago.
