Tom Daley

Tom Daley is one of the biggest names in world diving and one of the most popular sportsmen in Great Britain, having been named BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year three times.

Daley burst on to the scene by winning European 10m Platform gold as a 13-year old in 2008 then reaching the Olympic final on his debut at Beijing 2008, ultimately finishing seventh.

The following season, he became Great Britain's first individual World Championship gold medallist, winning the 10m Platform title in Rome.

Daley continued to progress in 2010, scooping double gold for 10m Platform and 10m Synchro at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

In 2012, he won the overall FINA World Series title as well as his second European gold before qualifying for London 2012 with gold at the British Gas Diving Championships in Sheffield.

It was at the London Olympics where Daley won the hearts of the British public, winning an emotional, last-gasp bronze medal in the 10m Platform event.

Despite an injury-plagued 2013 season, Daley defended his British title, won a World Series gold in Edinburgh and reached the 10m Platform final at his third World Championships, finishing sixth.

After switching to a new coach and training base in 2014, Daley continued to collect international medals, winning silver and bronze on the World Series, before defending his individual Commonwealth 10m Platform title in Glasgow then winning silver in the same event at the European Championships in Berlin.
