Friday Morning Man: Greg Louganis!

Greg Louganis turns 56 today and all I have to say is this; ‘Is he a silver fox or what?’

This seems to be a good time for Greg who had his share of tough times in his life for sure.

Married to the handsome Johnny Chaillot, since 2013, Greg has finally been getting some overdue recognition for his staggering accomplishments as the greatest diver in US history. (He has four gold medals from the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Games plus a silver medal he won at the 1976 Olympics when he was a 16-year-old high school student.)

The the HBO Sports documentary Back on Board: Greg Louganis tells Greg’s story amazingly well and, I hope, made younger people aware of this sports legend who competed while HIV-positive at those 1988 Olympics and still won even after hitting his head – and requiring stitches – on the diving board in a preliminary round.

He is one for the ages.

2 Remarks

  1. ‘Back On Board’ was AMAZING. So happy to see Greg and his adorable husband living life with such joy.

  2. Wow! Greg Louganis is only a couple of weeks older than me. He’s become more handsome as the years go by. He’s a great role model for all gay men including HIV-positive men because he’s living life to the fullest potential regardless of what life throws at him. I love this guy!
