Gay athlete pens touching poem to Greg Louganis honoring his HIV/AIDS activism

first published on Outsports:Upon his diving board, a figure poised,Greg Louganis, grace in dives composed.A watershed deep, his prowess undisguised, Olympic height, where victories enclosed.Yet, not confined to pools of accolades,His legacy, a beacon shining bright.On World AIDS Day, his courage cascades, A champion for those in silent fight.Through fluid arcs, he battled more than air, HIV’s tide, a challenge unafraid.With openness, he sought to share,To break the silence, myths began to fade.On this revered day, we turn our gaze,To a mister Greg Louganis, a hero’s humble grace.That’s some beautiful prose, if we say so ourselves. Van Sledright told Outsports Louganis is one of his heroes.“Louganis’s impact on this World AIDS Day is profound remembrance, a reminder that strength takes on many forms,” he said.
