Caitlyn Jenner discusses winning Olympic gold

NEW YORK (AP) — Caitlyn Jenner has discussed the various victories in her life, including winning Olympic gold, in a documentary-style video for clothing retailer H&M.

Jenner describes tearfully climbing the medal podium after winning gold in the decathlon in the 1976 Montreal Games. She calls sports a "wonderful diversion from myself."

Jenner also discusses overcoming dyslexia as a child and transitioning to a woman as an adult. She says being able to wake up in the morning and be herself is "the biggest victory of all."

The video coincides with the release of a sports-themed clothing line by H&M ahead of next month's Rio Olympics.
