Greg Louganis is considered the greatest diver in history. As a 3x Olympian, he is the only male to win gold medals on both 3 meter springboard and 10 meter platform in consecutive Olympic Games (1984, 1988). With a total of 5 Olympic medals, 5 World Championship titles, 6 Pan American titles and 47 national titles, his records remain unbroken.
His legacy was built through a life of adversity including his adoption, learning differences, a victim of bullying given his skin color, and almost walking away from his defining sport at the age of 11. His mindset to choose his own destiny, never give up and smile through it all was made possible by the ultimate belief of his mother, his coach, and his mental training. This process culminated in one of the most memorable Olympic performances of all time in which he hit the platform, split his head open, suffered a concussion then came back to win the gold!
Today, as a coach, speaker, author, actor, activist, humanitarian and GOAT of mindset he continues his tradition of excellence.
