Part 3 of Jimmy Nguyen's interview with Ji Wallace - 2000 Olympic silver medalist in trampoline from Australia. Ji talks about his powerful experience coming out as HIV+. This happened during the 2012 London Summer Olympics, when Ji watched on television as Piers Morgan interviewed Olympic champion diver Greg Louganis. That prompted Ji to write to Piers Morgan and say that "I too am an Olympic medal winner living with HIV." Ji also wrote to the Sydney Star Observer to announce his HIV status.
