Olympian silver-medalist Ji Wallace and his partner Shaun stopped by The Advocate & HIV Plus offices on Friday in Los Angeles. They were in town from Sydney competing in the L.A. Marathon, after raising $4,000 for APLA. Ji made headlines last year when he disclosed publicly that he was HIV-positive after seeing a Piers Morgan interview with Olympian Greg Louganis, whom he had the chance to meet with while in Los Angeles. Ji signed copies of the issue, which HIV Plus plans to auction off for charity in the coming weeks.
