MALIBU, Calif.—Olympic diver Greg Louganis on Oct. 12 married his partner.

“It was amazing because I have so many people from all facets of my life here tonight and they are all here and celebrating it is all wonderful,” Louganis told People after he and Johnny Chaillot exchanged vows at a Malibu restaurant. “I already feel different.”

Louganis won two gold medals in the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul and in the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. He won a silver medal in the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, but was unable to compete in the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow because the U.S. boycotted them over the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan the previous year.
