Born in El Cajon, California, in 1960, Greg Louganis was born to teenage parents and was adopted as a baby. He quickly became interested in dance and gymnastics and started competing by the age of three; Louganis began routinely diving before his tenth birthday. Within six years, Louganis had attracted enough attention in the pool to make the 1976 U.S. Olympic team. Two years later, he attended the University of Miami and later the University of California at Irvine. He was forecast to sweep the gold medal events at the 1980 summer games, but the U.S. boycott kept him from participating in Moscow. Louganis took part in the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, winning gold in tower and springboard. He snagged two more gold medals during the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, and ended his Olympic diving career with four gold medals and one silver finish. That same year, Louganis tested positive for HIV and wrote about his experience in his bestselling book "Breaking the Surface". The openly gay athlete was forthcoming about his abusive relationship in the autobiography. In 1996, Showtime told his life story in an original movie, "Breaking the Surface: The Greg Louganis Story", starring Mario Lopez. Louganis has appeared in several films, including "It's My Party" and "Broken Record". He wrote a book about his experience in dog agility competitions and now coaches divers in Fullerton, California. Louganis married his partner Johnny Chaillot in 2013 and was inducted into the National Gay and Lesbian Sports Hall of Fame the same year.
