World Champion Tom Daley has been named in the shortlist for the Laureus Breakthrough of the Year Award 2010.
Daley became the country’s youngest world champion when he impressed the diving community by beating Olympic Champion Matt Mitcham and Olympic medallist Luxin Zhou to the gold in Rome.
The Olympian has been nominated alongside other sporting champions including Jenson Button and Mark Cavendish.
The results will be announced in March and Daley will see if he can follow Rebecca Adlington who won the award in 2009.
