just never got the chance.
As I climb out of the water, picking up my chamois cloth on the way, I always think about Dad. He was at almost every training session and competition that I did, until he died in May 2011, and every time I train I expect to see him sitting by the poolside, grinning and cracking jokes, making everyone around him laugh. He was not only my Dad; he was my best friend, sounding board, taxi driver and biggest champion. When I jump from the board at London 2012, it will be for him.Good Luck, Tom Daley!

AHHAAH THE GOLDFISH (:
Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte place first and second respectively in the 200m IM- their last race together in these Olympic games. Michael Phelps made history, becoming the first Olympian to win gold in the same event in three different olympic games (Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, and London 2012), and now has a grand total of 20 Olympic medals.
- me watching the Olympics: oh wow, that was impressive!
