Biography

www.peterwaterfield.com

Peter Waterfield was the oldest and most experienced member of the British team at London 2012 – and won Olympic 10m synchro silver with Leon Taylor at Athens 2004.

Waterfield’s success with Taylor was Britain’s first medal since Rome 1960 and the sixth in the history of the Games.

At London 2012 he competed in the 10m synchro for the first time at an Olympics since 2004, partnering Tom Daley. The pair are the current World Series champions.

Waterfield also won World Cup bronze in the 10m individual in February and added that event to his Olympic schedule at London 2012.

He has been unfortunate with injuries this year – minor shoulder and neck problems – with the latter keeping him out of this year’s European Championships.

Waterfield did return to win 10m synchro gold with Daley at the British Championships but had to settle for silver in the 10m individual, finishing behind his Olympic synchro partner.
