Diving great Greg Louganis to marry in fall

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 12:04 p.m. HST, Jun 19, 2013

NEW YORK » Former Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis plans to get married this fall.

People magazine says the 53-year-old Louganis will marry paralegal Johnny Chaillot.

The four-time gold medalist is the only man to win consecutive Olympic titles in springboard and platform diving — in 1984 at Los Angeles and 1988 at Seoul.

After his diving career ended, Louganis revealed he was gay in 1994 and announced he was HIV-positive a year later.

Louganis is helping Olympic hopefuls as an athlete mentor for USA Diving. He's also been featured as a coach on ABC's reality diving competition "Splash."

While Mr. Louganis deserves the utmost respect for his athletic accomplishments, I don't consider this an "uplifting" story. Does that make me small minded and myopic too?

While "shawnchun" obviously deserves no response , you have provided a more thoughtful response, which is appreciated. Despite the all too frequent persecution of homosexuals, which I object to as strongly as you probably do, my personal belief in God's word will not allow me to support the increasingly popular "gay" movement. That being said, your description of Mr. Louganis is entirely accurate, his athletic abilities and his personal courage are to be admired.
