Olympic diver Greg Louganis is one of the most beloved athletes in modern history,but Louganis describes a childhood in which he was taunted for having a stutter and learning disabilities. He writes, "From my first day at Chase Elementary School the other kids started calling me names. ...I had trouble reading, but it got really bad once we got past single words and simple sentences. What I couldn't explain--what I didn't realize--was that I was dyslexic." Greg overcame his stutter as an adult.
