The youngest ever person to qualify for the U.S. Olympic diving trials, Jordan Pisey Windle will serve as grand marshal of central Indiana's pride festival.

Jordan Pisey Windle, 13, is working hard to qualify as a diver for this summer's Olympic games in London, and his two fathers are encouraging him every step of the way.

Windle is the son of Jerry Windle, who, as a single man, adopted the ailing child from Cambodia when he was only a year old. The elder Windle brought his son to Florida, where he got him involved in diving around the time Jordan was in second grade. Jordan's intelligence and diving talents caught the attention of Ron O'Brien, a onetime coach of celebrated gay Olympic diver Greg Louganis. Jordan continued training while at school in Fort Lauderdale but was encouraged to move to his present home of Indianapolis, the home to the USA Diving's National Training Center.

Jerry Windle would eventually meet Andres Rodriguez, a sports lover who would become his partner. Rodriguez blended seamlessly into the small family and the three became a unit. Now Jordan, with the encouragement of his fathers, is heading to Seattle to compete in the 2012 Olympic trials -- he's the youngest person ever to qualify for the U.S. Olympic diving trials.

Jordan is proud of his gay dads and even filmed an "It Gets Better" video. In honor of Jordan's achievements, he's been named grand marshal of the Circle City Indiana Pride Parade on June 9. Watch Jordan's "It Gets Better" video below and read more about him here.
