Makin' history up in here!

If you didn't already know, the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro just so happen to be the most LGBT-inclusive games in the history of the sporting event.

Not only are there more out players than ever before, but Team USA also marked a major milestone when Chris Mosier became the first transgender athlete to make the squad!

The 35-year-old Duathlon runner has already had an amazing 2016 — he was the first trans individual to be featured in ESPN's Body Issue – but now he just got his very own Olympic Nike ad as well!

The 30-second spot features a narrator asking Chris about his undeniable courage, but the runner spoke even more about making the team off camera, saying:

Chris Mosier just made history!

That's because after landing a spot on the USA National Duathlon Team on Saturday, Chris became the first transgender athlete to make it onto the team of the gender they identify; as opposed to the gender assigned when they were born.

The 35-year-old finished 37th out of 117 competitors, but only needed to be one of the top eight times for men aged 35-38 to make the team… and he did!

By the way, for those of you who are a little confused as to what a Duathalon is, it's a sporting event similar to a triathlon only it consists of running, cycling, and then another leg of running.

We think it's a little ridiculous that this is only the first time something like this has ever happened, but we're glad Chris has now opened the door for his fellow trans athletes.

Chris and the rest of the USA Team will next compete at the 2016 World Championship Duathalon in Spain, so that just means he's got a little more time to train even harder.

Congrats again, Chris!

Now go win us the gold!

Pippa Middleton Takes Her Famous Butt For A Run


Run, Pippa! Run!

One of the world's most famous British behinds was accented by a pair of tiny jogging shorts on Thursday when Pippa Middleton went for a run near her London.

Demonstrating perfect form, the Duchess of Cambridge's sister looked like no stranger to pavement as she got some quality cardio in for the day.

Wonder how far she ran? Last we heard, Pippa finished a 50-mile duathlon across Scotland! What ridiculous feat of physical endurance is she training for now?
