"Had anyone known about my HIV status, I wouldn't have been allowed into the country," Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis said.
In 1988, U.S. Olympic diver Greg Louganis hit his head on a diving board during the Summer Games in Seoul, South Korea. Louganis was bleeding from the head and into the pool.
