Olympic Champion Diver Greg Louganis Makes Appearance at Marguerite Aquatics Center

The Marguerite Aquatics Complex in Mission Viejo, California welcomed some Olympic star power for their grand re-opening. Greg Louganis highlighted the proceedings on April 7 that took place at the home of the world-renowned Nadadores swimming and diving club. 

Olympic gold medalists Rowdy Gaines and Brian Goodell also participated in the ceremony. After the formal re-opening, all three took photos and signed autographs for those in attendance. 

The $11 million renovation features a new diving tower and other facilities. One of the biggest improvements is that the tower is now wide enough for synchronized diving. 

Louganis is a four-time Olympic gold medalist, winning twice on the springboard and platform. He also won a silver on the platform at his first Games in 1976. 

Louganis is considered the greatest diver of all-time and was named the 1988 ABC Wide World of Sports Athlete of the Year. After his diving career, he became a prominent gay rights activist and HIV awareness advocate. 

Louganis is a member of the National Gay and Lesbian Rights Sports Hall of Fame and the California Sports Hall of Fame. He also serves as a mentor for the U.S. Diving Team and a coach at the SoCal Divers Club.
