4x Gold Medal Olympic Champion Greg Louganis named Foundation Ambassador

May 2018 - Greg Louganis has been an ardent supporter of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation since it was established in Monaco in 2012. In 2016 he became a founding Board Member of the U.S. chapter, and Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene has now appointed Greg as an ambassador for Her Foundation, to promote its important mission around the world.

Born in El Cajon, California in 1960, Greg started diving at the age of nine. At sixteen, he won his first Olympic medal (the silver) at the 1976 Montreal Olympics, in the platform diving competition.

Eight years later he became the first male diver to get double gold in springboard and platform in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, and again in the 1988 Seoul Olympics. He has earned a total of 5 Olympic medals, 5 World Championship titles and 47 national titles — more than any person in U.S. history.

Greg says, “I am thrilled and honored to be named an ambassador for HSH Princess Charlene's foundation,
that does such important work. Our shared background as athletes makes this even more special for me,
and I have so much respect for her choices, and the ways in which she works to make the world a better

The Foundation is thrilled to have such an accomplished athlete and activist support our work.
