Waterfield to stay as Daley's partner

October 17, 2012 19:14 pm

Veteran Peter Waterfield will remain as Tom Daley's platform synchro partner until at least the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

British Diving performance director Alexei Evangulov has confirmed the 31-year-old four-time Olympian would continue.

Waterfield and Daley finished fourth at the London Olympics with the veteran later admitting he had apologised to his teenage partner for a missed dive that cost them a medal.

After enduring an injury-interrupted year there was some speculation Waterfield, who won Olympic silver in 2004, might bow out on the high of a home Games.

But with Waterfield still keen to compete at the top level, he will extend his decade-long career further.

"Pete Waterfield will remain as Tom Daley's partner in the platform synchro," Evangulov told Press Association Sport.

"They are a good team together as we saw at the Olympics Games."
