RESUME DETAILS
  • * Greg Louganis

    Greg Louganis began competing in diving at age 9. By 16, he had won his
    first Olympic medal, a silver medal on the platform in 1976. At 24, he
    became the first man in 56 years to win two Gold Medals in diving by
    winning both the platform and springboard events. In 1988, competing
    against divers half his age, he became the first to win double Gold Medals
    for diving in two consecutive Olympics. 
    Greg’s diving accomplishments did not stop there. He is a five time World
    Champion and holds 47 National Championship titles. At the Pan Am Games, he
    earned six Gold Medals, and in 1985, he was awarded the Sullivan Award as
    the “Nation’s most outstanding amateur athlete.”
    Considered the greatest diver of all time, Greg was the first to score over
    700 points in a diving competition under the old scoring system and is
    still the only one to accomplish that feat at an Olympics. However, what
    most people remember about Greg is that he went on to win Olympic Gold at
    the 1988 Games despite striking the back of his head on the springboard
    during the preliminaries. He attempted a reverse 2½ somersault pike in the
    ninth round of the prelims, and he hit his head on the board and fell into
    the water. Thirty-five minutes later, after receiving stitches to his scalp
    wound, he resumed diving. The following day, he hit all 11 dives and easily
    won the Olympic Gold Medal.
    At the 1988 Olympic Games, he was awarded the Maxwell House/United States
    Olympic Committee Spirit Award as the Olympic athlete who had best
    exhibited the ideals of the Olympic spirit, demonstrated extraordinary
    courage and contributed significantly to the sport. Greg is more than just
    a diver; he stands out as a human being as well. Greg speaks out for many
    organizations including youth clubs, drug and alcohol rehabilitation
    groups, and organizations for the dyslexic.
    Greg was diagnosed HIV positive in 1988, and revealed his HIV status in his
    1995 autobiography, "Breaking the Surface," which spent five weeks at
    number one on the New York Times Best-Seller List.  He then produced a
    Video Diary called "Looking to the Light," which picked up where "Breaking
    the Surface" left off. 

    Greg’s second book, For the Life of Your Dog: A Complete Guide to Having a
    Dog From Adoption and Birth Through Sickness and Health, was published in
    1999. Greg has trained three dogs to the American Kennel Club (AKC) dog
    agility nationals. Greg was born, raised and still resides in California.
