Chris Mosier, a transgender triathlete, has won a sponsorship deal through a YouTube contest with training system TRX.

He was one of ten athletes chosen for the prize, which includes money to be put toward racing and training expenses, TRX workout equipment, and a video camera to document his progress.

He hopes to highlight transgendered competitors in sports with his new deal, explaining:

“With this sponsorship, I am hoping to bring some awareness to trans people participating in sports, and some of the issues we face. The first step of that is to let people know there are trans people in sports.”

Congratulations on the sponsorship deal, Chris! We're so excited that you're raising awareness on behalf of the LGBT community through your success and wish you the best as you continue to compete!
