Greg Louganis is one of the most successful Olympic divers ever to grace the games, with 4 gold medals and countless other titles in international games. In the 1988 Olympics he hit his head on the diving board and suffered from a concussion, yet still qualified with the highest score on his next dive. Greg Louganis demonstrated his greatest level of courage, however, when he came out as gay in 1994 and announced that he was HIV positive to the public. Greg Louganis serves not only as a role model to divers and to all athletes, but to a whole community of people stigmatized for being gay and for being infected with HIV. Thanks to Greg’s courage, we are one step closer to breaking down stereotypes, and inspired to continue the fight against HIV/AIDS.
