Greg Louganis is getting hitched. According to People Magazine, the American diving legend is marrying Johnny Chaillot. He confirmed the news on Twitter.

Louganis worn four gold medals at the 1984 and 1988 Olympics, a feat no one else has accomplished before or since. The 1988 springboard gold was his most memorable. In the preliminary rounds, he hit his head on the diving board and sustained a concussion. He competed with the injury and still won gold, then went on to win the gold in springboard.

In 1995, Louganis came out to the public and served as the diving announcer at the Gay Games. The next year, he shared that he is HIV-positive. Since then, he's been an author, a diving coach, a dog trainer, and was the "Dive Master" on the ABC reality show "Splash.
