Tom Daley seals double diving gold success at the Commonwealth Games


By Keira Daley

13 October 2010

Tom Daley, the 16-year-old British No1 diver and the reigning 10m platforn world champion, has won his second gold medal of the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, triumphing in the 10m solo event.

He had already triumphed in the 10m synchro with Max Brick.

The significance of today’s victory is that Daley pipped Matt Mitcham, the reigning Olympic champion, who took silver.

Daley is on course to be one of the home stars of the London Olympics in 2012.

The Commonwealth competition is the first major meet where Daley’s father, Rob, is not in attendance. He is at home in Plymouth recovering from his latest chemotherapy session, a result of an aggressive brain tumour that recently returned after five years.
