Olympic athlete Greg Louganis reflects on living with HIV

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: We lavish a lot of attention on people who have so little to say and accomplished so little in their lives. Reality stars, mistresses of famous men, duchesses who sell their ex-husband out.

So it is so refreshing to be able to spotlight Greg Louganis, one of the greatest Olympic athletes in history who overcame great obstacles in his life to reach the top of his sport and who remains an inspirational figure for so many.

Greg’s story means so much to me because I was coming out in a big way in the mid-90s and it was then that he also came out and wrote a deeply-felt memoir called Breaking the Surface in which he revealed that he had been HIV positive when he won his third and fourth gold medals at the 1988 Olympics.
