    I met him at on a beach in Puerto Rico when he was promoting a sun tan oil. I thought I looked good in my speedo and had mine on and then the dude busts out in his orange one, let me tell you, no one looked better in a speedo than this guy.

    An athlete with hi's talent would have been dominated even today,very consistent,stable dives ,I watch this years world in Barcelona,many mistakes done by Chinese and by Russian Zakharov,and I do remember Greg's executions- very consistent and good.

    Apparently not; Louganis won Gold, they didn't.

    I love how he keeps his knees together on those 3.5 somersaults from the platform!

  • Markus McManus

    Remember if he was in his prime today he would be doing way harder dives than he did then too. Gymnasts who are in their 20s come back supposably past their physical prime and do way harder skills than they did in their physical prime as teenagers. It is the way sport is.

  • Markus McManus

    Louganis is the greatest ever since he was dominant and great on both platform and springboard. The ony other one I can think of who was would be Xiong Ni, but less dominant and successful on both, even had he beaten Greg for the 88 platform gold as I think he should have. I agree He Chong would beat Greg on springboard on a good day with both in their primes, but Greg's unique artistry and style which the powerhouse Chong does not have should still be appreciated.

    the only reason i use to watch diving was because of greg louganis. i loved watching him dive it was just beauiful to watch. i wish i was able to see him do it in person it was just amazing to watch him; ever sense he's retired i haven't been watching diving it's just not interesting with out him.

    So what makes you such an expert on artistry in diving? If He Chong dove back in Louganis's day he would have destroyed him, Greg probably wouldn't have even finaled in the olympics this year. Obviously he is a legend, who pushed the sport to new levels, but don't act like he could do the same thing today.

    Get over yourself! In 1964 Dibiasi won a silver on the platform at 16, like Louganis did in 1976 at 16. I guess Bob Webster of the U.S. schooled Dibiasi at his first Olympics? Dibiasi was only great on the platform, but Louganis won twice the gold on the platform and the 3M springboard. Also, the U.S. government by boycotting the 1980 Olympic took his chance to have 3 consecutive gold in both the platform and 3M springboard. Those are facts.

  • cbonklisse
    cbonklisse 6 years ago +1

    A lot of people are forgetting that Louganis would have more olympic medals if the U.S. government did not boycott the 1980 Olympics in Moscow. I just wish governments would leave the athletes alone and stick their noses where it belongs, which is out of sports. Athletes should never be taken as hostage. The Summer olympics of 1980 and 1984 suffred because of them. Damn politicians!

    Never heard of this guy before. I came here because Michael Fassbender mentioned him in the making-of Prometheus. He says that he used Louganis's walk (on the platform) for his character David.

    David Boudia is a mere 22 years old, Louganis is 52! Louganis by the way was one of the members of the 2012 Olympic team (coach).

  • sluggo1776
    sluggo1776 6 years ago

    Dibiasi was a beautiful diver and while you may say he "totally" school Louganis Dibiasi was about 28 years old and his body was more mature than the 16 year old Louganis. Both had beauty and grace while diving but to say Louganis only won because Dibiasi retired is but speculation.

    You are to pitied if that's all you remember him by. I never even watched diving either b4 or after this guy coz no1 can ever come close to his poetry in motion.

  • Marilyn Foley

    I saw Louganis for the first time when I was just a kid. I was channel surfing and stopped to watch diving because all elite-level diving is beautiful. I watched one diver after another-and then Louganis came on. What the hell was THAT! I asked myself. Louganis did the same thing everyone else did. He just did it so much better it gave me chills. I couldn't find fault with anyone else's dive. They'd all seemed perfect to me. But then Louganis came on. He was better than perfect. He was sublime.

  • Cinchyable

    Yes, the waves (no pun intended) of Chinese divers have been clearly better than Louganis going back a ways. They might not be as handsome, but they are - fairly obviously - better.

    Well we wish all those divers the best of luck. But no only was Greg Louganis in those Olympics the best diver, he was one of the best performance in the Olympics of any athlete, ever. Divers may be doing harder dives to push the envelope, because they gave up trying to perfect the dives that Greg already did.

    Greg Louganis, Michael Phelps, and the 2004 Athens Rowing 8 were by far some of my most favorite experiences in watching the olympics.
    Each and every one of them set the bar extraordinarily high.
    Simply amazing!

    @danpitts15 none of those divers would compare themselves to Greg Louganis, simply because he not only dominated in 3m spring AND 10m platform, but also because he perfected his consistency and technique in both events. Greg Louganis is still the greatest diver of both his time and our time. But who knows what the future holds, the divers you listed may grow to dominate in both events and maintain consistency and very soon may exceed the current diving king.

  • Dan Pitts
    Dan Pitts 6 years ago

    @dieseldog00 Greatest diver of HIS time, not all time. The rising talents are already in talks of being the best of all time. He Chong, Qui Bo, Kristian Ipsen(18). He Chong is already scoring higher and throwing harder dives. No doubt though, Greg Louganis was absolutely amazing!

    Now that I've seen this and Mary Lou Retton's gymnastics, I get the Family Guy joke when Peter was about to dive from the tree. "I'm going to start with a Greg Louganis triple salto and move on to a Mary Lou Retton-" branch breaks.
    He was just so fantastic.
