LOS ANGELES, July 22 (UPI) -- Caitlyn Jenner reflects back on her life and journey in a new video from H&M entitled "Greatest Victories: A Timeline."

"Sports was always this wonderful diversion from myself and about who I was," the reality star noted after reflecting back on earning a gold medal in 1976.

As the timeline in the video reached the '80s, Caitlyn revealed how she felt "down in the dumps" until she met and married Kris in 1991. "She had a great sense of style, of class and I give a lot of credit to Kris of kind of bringing me back to life," Caitlyn explains. "It was a very busy house and quite a ride, but I loved it and that's what I did."

Caitlyn then detailed how it felt to reveal herself on the cover of Vanity Fair in June of 2015. "The day I did the shoot with Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair, I had this great gown on, off the shoulder, just rockin'. And I looked in the mirror and I thought to myself, 'This is the first time I've ever seen myself,'" Caitlyn said.

"This person who has lived inside me all my life, there she was for the first time. Because I knew when Vanity Fair comes out, everything was gonna change, gender markers, name, everything. And to be honest with you, the media threw old Bruce right out the door, he was gone, OK? This Caitlyn character's a lot more interesting. And I knew from that point on I had to live my life as Caitlyn," she continued.

Despite everything Caitlyn has accomplished throughout her life however, she was quick to point out that he greatest victory was raising her family.

H&M's "For Every Victory" collection is available now. The clothes were designed in collaboration with professional athletes to allow for more breathable, dry-fit workout attire.

Caitlyn was named the new face of H&M's sports campaign back in March.
