Tom Daley Almost Didn't Return To Diving After 2012 London Olympics

Tom Daley and Dan Goodfellow towel off after completing a dive together during a training session at the Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre on Thursday (August 4) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The two Team Great Britain divers will have their first competition in Men’s Synchronized 10m Platform event on Monday, August 8th for the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics.

“After the last Olympics, I didn’t want to dive again,” Tom revealed recently. “I had the biggest post-Games slump you can imagine. I just never wanted to set foot on a diving board so doing something different and mixing it up really helped me.”

He added, “Even now, going into the Olympics, I have cut lots of things back but I like to do other things like cooking classes and Spanish classes. I end up thinking a bit too much about diving so I need to keep my busy mind occupied.”
