It has been tough, but we’ve spent all week long scouring the depths of Instagram to bring you this week’s Instahottie — Jordan Windle.
The American Olympic diver is ready for his shot at Olympic gold in Tokyo. His gay single dad, Jerry Windle, will be cheering him on. Windle ended up placing 9th in the Men’s 10m platform event.
Dubbed “Little Louganis” for the famed out athlete, Greg Louganis, who mentored him, the 22-year-old diver, who was adopted at 18 months old from Cambodia by a single gay American man, has spent the last 15 years preparing for this moment.”
On the flight to Tokyo for this year’s summer Olympics, Windle told NBC, he was “sitting there super anxious and was actually shaking a little bit” with apprehension.
“But the first day I got in the pool, all those nerves kind of disappeared, because in my mind and in my heart it felt like I was meant to be here,” the talented young athlete added.
NBC detailed how Windle “was bullied as a child for having a gay father ‘and just being different in general,’ “ part of which was his Cambodian heritage. Now, though, he’s “something of a hero in his homeland, and the first diver of Cambodian descent to compete in the Games.” He also has legions of American fans.
