NEW YORK — Former Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis announced he plans to marry this fall.
People magazine reported that Louganis, 53, will marry paralegal Johnny Chaillot.
“I finally met my soul mate – the more I fall in love with Johnny, the more I fall in love with myself. This is what the universe had in store for both of us,” Louganis told People.
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.”
