Greg Louganis defends the Olympics on "Portlandia"

A few weeks ago we asked:

Just who are we seeing from the back here in this episode of IFC television series Portlandia entitled "No Olympics"?

Yes! It's Gay Games Ambassador Greg Louganis, who lets the anti-Olympics campaigners know how great the Olympics are, how they're the alternative to competitive sport (we think he was talking about LGBT sport there), and how athletes trade cool lapel pins.

Also in this episode, a demonstration of solo syncrhonized canoeing, a sport not yet on the program of either the Olympics or the Gay Games.* 

Info HERE.

*Apparently it's freestyle canoeing... and it's real!
