See Greg Louganis do a syncro dive!

Four-time gold medalist Greg Louganis wasn’t at the Olympic Trials in Indianapolis over the weekend to compete but he ended up doing some diving anyway.

He joined 2000 Olympic gold medalist Laura Wilkinson for something he had never done in competition: a synchro dive.

‘Oh God, I think I’m in trouble,’ he said, laughing, after agreeing to do the dive with Wilkinson who had just interviewed him for NBC Sports.

But never one to back away from a challenge, Louganis put on a pair of yellow Speedos and Wilkinson a red bathing suit and they headed to the platform where they performed a dive in tandem.

Commentators pronounced the dive ‘impeccable.’

Now 56, Louganis has been involved again in USA Diving in recent years as a mentor to young divers.

He’s got an unmatched record of four gold medals and one silver medal over three different Olympics and is widely considered to be the greatest male diver of all time.

Still in terrific shape, Louganis has posed nude for the current ESPN Magazine ‘Body Issue’ and boxes of Wheaties cereal featuring a younger Louganis are also in stores.
