Before there was English Diving Hottie Tom Daley:
Kids Today probably don’t know Louganis very well but I L-O-V-E-D him! Not only was he beautiful with that gorgeous body – but he was an incredible and graceful athlete. He won 4 gold medals and excelled at both springboard and platform. And not only that but in 1988 at the Olympics in Seoul he hit his head on the board and then less than an hour later got back up and not only dived again but later went on to win a gold medal. Did you catch that? He won a gold medal diving off a high platform and hitting water at a crazy speed WITH A HEAD WOUND!!!
That’s some impressive sportsmanship. I saw him in the audience for the Men’s Synchronized Diving this week and squealed when I saw him. I will always heart Greg Louganis – Original Olympic Boyfriend!
