Nike Celebrates Diversity in Rio Olympics Ad
Chris Mosier, the first transgender duathlete to qualify for a US national team is being featured in a Nike ad. The ad is inspirational, a series of “How did you know?” questions to which Mosier responds, “I didn’t.”
Gaystarnews states, “The IOC ruled in January transgender athletes are eligible for competition without having undergone gender-affirming surgery. While Mosier will not compete in the Olympics, as duathlon is not a sport at Rio, he will compete in the World Championships.”
Mosier gives a whole new meaning to Nike’s famous “Just do it” slogan. We could all use some motivation from Mosier: don’t know? Just do it anyway.
