Caitlyn Jenner has revealed that her "gender problems" have contributed to her professional success at the Olympic Games and that she now sees this struggle as a "gift" along with her dyslexia.
Before the 70-year-old came out as a transgender woman, he won gold in the men's decathlon at the 1976 Olympic Games and became a sports hero in the United States.
Now Jenner has said that she "ignored" her internal struggles while training for the games, but they haven't completely disappeared.

"I didn't understand it and didn't know what was wrong with me. But it was also my dyslexia and gender problems that made me an Olympic champion.
"I channeled my fights to drive and push myself. Now I see these problems as my gift."
It's been five years since Jenner introduced Caitlyn to the world in her Vanity Fair cover shoot "Call Me Caitlyn" when she appeared publicly as a transgender woman at the age of 65.

She went on to write in the publication that five years later, "everything finally feels like it's in the right place," since she "no longer fights."
Jenner's youngest daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner have also recently learned how their parents' bravery in the transition "inspired" them.
"Because of my father's bravery, I learned to love what I love and not to be ashamed of it," 24-year-old Kendall told People.
