The article doesn't indicate whether he was HIV+ when he competed in 2000. Either way, telling the world you are HIV+ is a brave thing to do.

As I recall he was diagnosed 6 months prior to the 1988 Seoul Olympic games.  Years later after he disclosed about his HIV status (1995?) there was great consternation about him not disclosing at the time he hit his head in Seoul, and possibly exposing all his diving competitors to HIV.

I think Ford is referring to the Australian, Ji Wallace mentioned in the OP and not to Greg Louganis.
