Tom DALEY biography

At just fourteen years and three months old, Tom Daley was the youngest British Olympian since rowing coxswain Ken Lester, when he competed at the Beijing Olympics. Daley, who began diving at the age of seven, won the British national junior (under-18) platform title in 2004 just a few days after his tenth birthday. In 2007 he became the youngest ever winner of a British senior title when he took the individual platform event and the following years retained his title and added the synchronised event with partner Blake Aldridge. In March 2008 he scored a surprise victory at the European Championships in Eindhoven to become the youngest ever European champion in either swimming or diving. After Beijing he claimed two silver medals at the 2008 World Junior Championships, before winning the senior World Championship in 2009 at the age of 15. Daley won two gold medals at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, in the 10-metre individual and synchronized event with Max Brick. He competed in his second Olympics in 2012 and won an individual bronze medal. After the London Games, he gained celebrity status and hosted his own TV show entitled Splash!

Daley won a second successive Commonwealth Games gold medal in 2014, and also a silver, in the synchronized event with James Denny. The following year Daley won the inaugural team event at the World Championship with Rebecca Gallantree and ay Rio in 2016, Daley won a second Olympic bronze medal, with Daniel Goodfellow in the synchronized event. In qualifying for the semi-finals in the individual competition with a new Olympic record, Daley was clear favourite to make the final and collect a third Olympic medal. However, he had a succession of disastrous dives, and was eliminated.
