tom daley

August 12, 2008

Yesterday Tom Daley, the 14 year old British diving prodigy, came eighth out of eight with his partner in the synchronized 10m platform dive, much to both their disappointment. I had forgotten just how beautiful diving can be, until I saw this video of all his 10-scored dives from 2007. Every one was over in a flash, but breathtaking and controlled. He’s still got a chance in the individual events at this year’s Olympics, but surely very many more in the years to come too.
