Chris Mosier

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!

Tampa Woman Saves Man’s Life & Then Finishes  Race

Um, hero!

Long-distance relationships are hard — but it’s WAY harder to save a man’s life and then finish a race!

Teresa McCoy spotted two police officers kneeling next to a man on the road when she decided to pull over and see what was going on. It turned out that she knew the man from work.

Maria then performed CPR on him while she waited for the defibrillator

"I'm so glad he's alive," McCoy said Saturday night. "I know that God put me where I was supposed to be today. It's like I was his angel today.

So inspiring!
