Chris Mosier has already seen fame even before the Olympics started. We covered him in Transgender Duathlete Chris Mosier Is First To Appear Nude In ESPN Body Issue. But now there's a lot more focus on him with this Nike commercial which aired tonight (August 8, 2016) during NBC's Olympic coverage.
I thought it was a great commercial, inspiring no matter who was put in front of the camera, but knowing Chris's story, it did mean a lot more and was very emotional.
So if you were inspired by Nike and Chris's commercial, join the club. We were too! Unfortunately, the rest of the world is not full of smart accepting people. If you want to see proof of this, head over to YouTube and read some of the uneducated comments.
We're with you Chris. Make us proud! Well, you already have.
Here are a couple of the comments found over on YouTube. See if you can spot the positive one I copied.
