About Steele Johnson

Steele Johnson couldn’t even believe that he won a silver medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio for diving, so he took to his YouTube channel to vlog about it! At 20 years old, Steele has lived a noteworthy life, coming back from a head injury incurred while diving to become a Team USA medalist. But his diving game isn’t the only thing on point—he’s also a master of Instagram photography. Studying film at Purdue University has helped him learn to take stunning shots, which he posts to document life while he finishes school and trains hard for his next chance at Olympic gold.
