ESPN 30 for 30 Shorts: Thicker Than Water

ESPN Films has released the forty-third film in their 30 for 30 documentary short series.

30 for 30 Shorts: Thicker Than Water

No diver had ever won two gold medals in consecutive Olympics, so the pressure on Greg Louganis before the 2008 Games in Seoul was immense. And that was before he found out that he was HIV positive, before he knew he would have to take AZT around the clock, and before he realized he needed to keep his condition a secret. In this moving documentary directed by Jennifer Arnold, Louganis and his coach, Ron O'Brien, open up about those excruciating days, and the leaps of faith that they both took to make history.
