Bookmark and Share

The Duke University diving team will welcome a very special guest on campus this week as the 1984 and 1988 Olympic double gold medalist Greg Louganis will come to town as part of an athlete mentor program put on by USA Diving. 

As part of his visit, Duke will host a club day beginning at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday (July 2) at the Blue Devil dry land practice facility, where Louganis will talk with local divers, coaches and fans.

The facility is located at 808 West Trinity Avenue in Durham.

The club day is free and open to the public.

Louganis, who won 47 U.S. national diving titles and was also a silver medalist on the platform in 1976, will spend three days with Duke divers Abby Johnston and Nick McCrory as they prepare to travel to the World Championship and compete for a spot on the 2012 U.S. Olympic squad.  A three-time NCAA champion, Louganis will watch both Johnston and McCrory train and share knowledge as they prepare for the upcoming championship.
