Caitlyn Jenner sat down for an interview where she claimed that the transition from male to female was more difficult than training for the Olympics.
Born Bruce Jenner, Caitlyn battled with gender dysphoria - a mismatch between someone’s biological sex and their gender identity per the BBC.
"I trained 12 years for the games. I trained 65 years to transition in 2015. It was harder to do, it was less accepted. ‘Everyone loved the games, a lot of people when they see you transition hate your guts. Look at the quotes on Instagram. By far, that was a lot more difficult," the former tennis pro shared on the BBC Radio 4 podcast Don’t Tell Me The Score.
“I have the great double. Olympic decathlon champion and Glamour’s Woman of the Year.”
A lot of the training was really running away from the issues I had,” she added. "I remember getting up the next morning, didn’t have a stitch of clothes on, walking to the bathroom, medal sitting there on the table, put the medal around my neck, looking in the mirror and I go, ‘What have you just done? Am I stuck with this person the rest of my life?’ It was scary."
