Tom is an 18-year-old British diver who has captured the imagination of his home country. Last year Daley's father died of brain cancer. It's a personal tragedy that has inspired Daley to strive for more. Daley told the BBC: "Winning a medal would make all the struggles that I've had worthwhile." He also said, "I'm doing it for myself and my dad. It was both our dreams from a very young age. I always wanted to do it and Dad was so supportive of everything. It would make it extra special to do it for him."
