Tom Daley + Dad

“As I climb out of the water (…) I always think about Dad. He was at almost every training session and competition that I did, until he died in May 2011, and every time I train I expect to see him sitting by the poolside, grinning and cracking jokes making everyone around him laugh.

He was not only my dad; he was my best friend, sounding board, taxi driver and biggest champion. When I jump from the board at London 2012, it will be for him.“
