American Diver Greg Louganis, who won two gold medals at the Los Angeles games, looks for a repeat in Seoul as he begins competing in the Olympic 3M Springboard. In the preliminary round, Louganis’ quest is thrown into peril when he hits his head on the ninth dive. Despite a concussion and several stitches, Louganis recovered to qualify for the final, where he won the Gold Medal again.
