Tom Daley Becomes World Champion in Individual 10m!
Congratulations to Tom Daley, who became the World Champion in his individual 10m dive at the 2017 World Championships in Budapest over the weekend. Finishing with a new personal best, the athlete took the gold, beating the Olympic champions from China along the way!
Tom was elated to take the World Champion title and spoke of his feelings before he claimed victory. “When I saw Chen Aisen do his last dive, I saw the Chinese team cheering and celebrating as if they had won, and I was like ’okay, you want to play that game? I’m going to show you what I can do too.
“It turned me into a competitive animal. I was like ’okay, this is fun – this is what we’ve all been working for. Let the best man win’. It was a weird competitive feeling. It was like I had blinkers on.”
