Greg Louganis is more than just an Olympic Champion - he stands out as a remarkable human being who has led an exceptional life. He exhibited sheer grace and a winning style as the world’s greatest diver, but behind his professional achievements, Greg Louganis was battling a number of personal difficulties.
His best-selling autobiography, Breaking the Surface, is a behind-the-scenes account of a man struggling with far more than just striving to be a great athlete. For years, Louganis’ cheerful public persona covered up the personal troubles he has had to overcome - his HIV diagnosis, coming out as a gay man, domestic violence, substance abuse and dyslexia. Greg has optimistically confronted all of these challenges and has honestly shared his hardships with people everywhere.
Outside of diving, Greg also exhibited his broadcasting talent when he co-hosted segments on Good Morning America during the Atlanta Olympics, a first for an openly gay athlete. His video, Looking to the Light, a feature length visual diary of his life after Breaking the Surface, details how his story has influenced so many people. Greg’s recent book, For the Life of Your Dog, is about the challenges and joys of living with and caring for dogs, one of Greg’s favorite pursuits.
Today, Greg speaks out on the obstacles he has overcome with a warmth and grace that embody the Olympic spirit. A popular speaker for universities, community associations, health care organizations and corporate groups, his honest message of acceptance and understanding has inspired millions around the world.
