Biography

www.tomdaley.tv

Tom Daley began diving aged seven and in 2004 he became the youngest ever under-18 champion at the national championships. Daley competed internationally for the first time at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival three years later where he won a 10m synchro silver medal with Callum Johnstone. Making Daley’s performance all the more impressive was that he had to be given special dispensation to compete as he was below the minimum age requirement. 

He became Britain’s youngest ever European gold medallist in 2008 when he claimed the 10m individual title before making his Olympic debut in Beijing where he became Great Britain’s youngest Olympian for 48 years. Daley earned the title of Britain’s youngest ever world champion in any sport when he took 10m individual gold in Rome in 2009.

An injury to his triceps affected his 2010 season but he won double gold at the Commonwealth Games that year and in May he won his second European title.

In 2010 Daley became the first person to win the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award on three different occasions. In 2012 he also won the British 10m individual and 10m synchro titles.

At the 2012 Olympics in London, Daley won bronze in men's 10m platform.
