Daley withdraws from 10m Individual Platform event

Olympic medallist Tom Daley has withdrawn from the men’s 10m Platform Diving event at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Despite resting over the weekend, Daley and his training team have agreed that he should not compete in the individual platform diving event due to ongoing medical issues and the technical nature of the individual diving event.

Noah Williams, from Dive London, will be competing in the 10m Platform Diving event for Team England.

Daley to compete in Synchronised event

Daley will still compete in the men’s Synchronised 10m Platform with Daniel Goodfellow on 13 April 2018.

Daley said: “I am truly devastated not to be competing in the individual event.

“I have been training so hard for the Commonwealth Games, so this is a real disappointment for me.

“The hardest thing for any athlete is coping with an injury, especially when it means they can’t compete in what they have been working towards.

“I continue training for the 10m Synchronised Diving Event alongside Dan.”
