Though Greg Louganis was a favorite entering the 1980 Moscow games, he had to wait until the 1984 Los Angeles Games to beat record due to the USA boycott. But when he finally had a shot, Louganis demolished his competition and became the only male diver to sweep both springboard and platform gold. His score of 754.41 in the springboard event was more than 100 points better than the silver medalist. His 710.91, the best in history, in the platform event was more than 70 points better than the silver medalist. Four years later, Louganis captured both gold medals again, helping him on his way to being named the greatest diver of all time.
