Olympian Gus Kenworthy says that Caitlyn Jenner inspired him to come out.

The 24-year-old British-born American freestyle skier won the silver medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

He recently came out gay in a cover story for ESPN Magazine.

Kenworthy was interviewed while getting a haircut by social media star and hair stylist Kyle Krieger.

“Caitlyn Jenner's story had a big impact on me,” Kenworthy said. “I remember that there was a point where I was already thinking about coming out and then I saw that and I was like, 'Holy shit.' If she can do that with the world watching and way more an amplified way than my life. I was like, 'That's definitely' – it was encouraging for me and I feel that people were really supportive.”

Kenworthy also revealed that he's uncut.
