Recently I came across this article from early this year, focusing on the 10 moments that perhaps most defined me – publicly at least. I appreciate the perspective and would have to agree that these were pretty significant moments in my life.
As one of the first high profile figures to talk openly about having HIV/AIDS, Louganis became an advocate for those living with the condition and an example to the world of the full and active role they could play in society.

A true trailblazer.
