Earlier this year, the International Olympic Committee changed its policy so that transgender athletes could compete on the world stage without previous restrictions. According to Chris Mosier, the first transgender man to make Team USA, “the ceiling is now the floor.” Although Chris will not be competing in Rio, there’s no longer a limit on how far this athlete can go.
Watch all the Rio Olympic coverage on NBC starting August 5th.
