Canadian soccer star Quinn became the first openly transgender athlete to ever win an Olympic medal following their team's gold medal-winning win over Sweden on Aug. 6, NBC News reported.
Canada's 3-2 win in penalty kicks marked the first time the Canadian women's soccer team has ever won Olympic gold.
Quinn was one of at least three transgender and/or non-binary athletes to compete in the Tokyo Gamesalong with New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard and U.S. skateboarder Alana Smith. However, Quinn will be the only one to leave with a medal.
The Toronto native made their Olympic debut at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, where they helped the team win a bronze medal.
