Chris Mosier (He/Him)
Summit Speaker

Team USA Athlete / Speaker / Inclusion & Leadership Consultant / Coach & Personal Trainer

Chris Mosier has been called “the man who changed the Olympics” by the BBC and New York Magazine. In 2020 he made history by becoming the first transgender athlete to compete in the Olympic Trials in the gender with which they identify. In 2015 he became the first openly trans man to make Team USA in the men’s division and was the catalyst for change of the International Olympic Committee policy on transgender athletes. In 2016 he became the first trans athlete to compete in a world championship race under the new rules. Chris is a two-time Men’s National Champion, a Men’s All-American, and an inductee into the National Gay and Lesbian Sports Hall of Fame. He is sponsored by Nike, and was the first transgender athlete to land a contract with any major sporting company. Chris’s website, transathlete.com, is the go-to source for information about transgender athletes in sport. He has written and advocated for change in policies from the high school level to national governing bodies and professional leagues and has become one of the leading grassroots organizers against the current wave of anti-trans legislation across the United States. When not fighting the good fight, he mentors transgender and non-binary athletes around the world in hopes that he can live by his motto of “be who you needed when you were younger.”
