Greg Louganis knows he's not perfect.
And now, the openly gay Olympic diver is reliving all his "mistakes" in the new HBO documentary Back on Board.
"I kind of squirm in my seat and feel a little awkward and say 'Oh my God. I made that same mistake again,' " Louganis says of watching the final cut of the documentary, which premieres Tuesday. "I've been through an amazing but really crazy journey. Mine is a story of perseverance and seeing things change."

Olympic diver Greg Louganis is no stranger to gold medals, but now he is getting used to a wedding band.
Louganis, 53, married paralegal Johnny Chaillot, 52, Saturday evening at Geoffrey's in Malibu.
"It was amazing because I have so many people from all facets of my life here tonight and they are all here and celebrating it is all wonderful," Louganis told PEOPLE immediately following the sunset ceremony. "I already feel different. The ceremony was so reflective and representative of who we are."

Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis is about to take the plunge – the marrying kind, that is. He and his partner, paralegal Johnny Chaillot, will walk down the aisle this fall, the diver tells PEOPLE exclusively.
"I finally met my soul mate – the more I fall in love with Johnny, the more I fall in love with myself. This is what the universe had in store for both of us," Louganis, 53, says.
Louganis is widely considered the greatest diver in history. He is the only male to sweep both the 3m and 10m diving events in consecutive Olympic Games ('84 and '88). During his career he earned a total of five Olympic medals, five World Championship titles and 47 national titles.

It's one thing when a celebrity gets hurt training for the ballroom on Dancing with the Stars. But as fans of this spring's TV diving competition Splash have learned, when you put a star up on a springboard or platform, the danger level soars.
Or does it?
PEOPLE.com readers have expressed concern that the ABC reality competition poses a real threat to its participants – that the show may simply be too dangerous.
After all, Rory Bushfield ruptured an eardrum in a botched entry, Katherine Webb could no longer compete after an injury and Nicole Eggert was left bruised and swollen from a dive.
And when Kendra Wilkinson stepped down from the competition, she spoke up about her perception of the perils of the sport. "Every morning I would wake up and be shaking," she told PEOPLE earlier this month. "It's a really risky show. I related jumping off the high board into the water to jumping to my death. That's how big of a deal it was. To me, it really meant risking my life."
So we decided to do some investigating.

Her bathing suit is barely wet and Kendra Wilkinson's relationship with her coach Greg Louganis has already taken a nosedive.
In this video clip from ABC's new show Splash, the reality star plunges into a profanity-laced tirade after Louganis challenges her for refusing to jump from a three-meter board.
"I know Greg is the best diver of all time," Wilkinson, 27, says in a confessional on the competition show, which airs March 19. "Everybody would probably be pissed at me if I talked s–– about him, but guess what? I'm talking s–– about him. I don't like him."
