Seventeen-year-old Jordan Pisey Windle has come a long way since he was orphaned as a baby in Cambodia’s rural Prey Veng province. He’s a now eight-time junior national champion and a five-time U.S. national champion diver in the United States, and is tipped to make it to summer’s Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Jordan is currently visiting Cambodia - this is his first trip to his birth country.
Jordan Pisey Windle was about two-years old when he was adopted by his American father, Jerry Windle, a former U.S. Navy officer who had served off Cambodia's coast. Jordan's natural diving talent has won him numerous national championship titles, including first National Champion in the 10-meter platform, the 3-meter mixed gender event with his synchronized partner, and Olympic Silver Medal.
Aged just 12, Jordan won the U.S. Junior National Championship Title diving from the 10-meter platform. He then won gold at the Junior Pan American Championships in Arizona, and as well as silver and bronze medals at the U.S. National Championships in more recent years.
