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.
