I love the feeling of the weightlessness. I always love being in the water and to combine jumping off the side into the water feels like a different and fun way to be able to swim. I feel free like I could do anything— Tom Daley
The most scandalous Tom Daley quotes that are simple and will have a huge impact on you
I think the real reason for my improvement is because I had such a long period in the off-season just working as hard as I could on all my new dives; making sure I did lots of repetition to get them consistent.
It's like being at a theme park every time you go to a training session
I was World Series champion in individual and synchro for the first time which was awesome.
Obviously in 2008 it was 538 (to win an Olympic gold) and most of my scores have been over that this year.
My dad was an incredibly brave man, completely dedicated to his family, with a love for all. If I could be half the dad he was, to my children, then that will be an achievement in itself. He died 14 months exactly to the start of the 2012 Olympics. I hope he will be watching and waving his big union jack in London from somewhere else. I love you so much dad.
I'm not allowed to celebrate as normal eighteen year olds probably would but I'm going to save it for after the Olympics!
I think if I am to win an Olympic medal I'll have to score like I did today.
While everyone else is in the spa, im gonna shower because im Tom Daley

I didn't look at any of the newspapers, I look at the pictures sometimes, but apart from that I don't read them.
It means so much to be European champion again with a personal best and I couldn't have asked for anything more.
There are some great divers in Europe and I'm really excited about going to Eindhoven.
Finishing overall champion at the World Series in both the individual and synchro events has given me great confidence and I'm pleased I've been diving with consistency.
Of course I still fancy girls but right now I'm dating a guy and I couldn't be happier.
