Speak Up With Jimmy : Ji Wallace, Part 3 (VIDEO)

Part 3 of my conversation with Ji Wallace -- 2000 Olympic silver medalist in trampoline from Australia. In this segment, Ji talks about his powerful experience coming out as HIV+. During the 2012 London Summer Olympics, 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. Ji shows how empowering it can be for people living with HIV to SPEAK UP.
