Olympic Hopeful of the Day: Diving phenom Jordan Pisey Windle, at just 13, is the youngest ever to qualify for the U.S. Olympic diving trials, which will be held in Seattle later this month.
But Jordan’s also a young standout in the LGBT community. Adopted from Cambodia as a baby and raised by two gay dads, he recently released his own “It Gets Better” spot, and he will serve as the grand marshal for Central Indian’s upcoming Pride Parade.
Despite his increasing notoriety, Jordan isn’t too preoccupied with his upbringing: “I’ve never actually thought about it,” he says.
And the youngster’s sights are set on Rio de Janeiro if he doesn’t make London.
“This is a good setup for 2016,” says mentor Greg Louganis, a four-time Olympic gold medalist. “This is a time to learn. It’s a learning process and a journey.”
