Tom Daley approaches third Olympics with only one intention: "I'm going for a gold medal"Tom Daley invented a modern decathlon including

meditation, ballet, trampolining and cookery to help him fall back in love with diving. After his bronze medal on the 10-metre platform at London 2012, jaded Daley almost quit the sport after spending a week unwinding “like a normal 18-year-old” - and discovering it was fun. But after a long, hard look in the Daley mirror, he resolved to win gold in Rio and break Chinas domination of the deep end. The key to his rekindled enthusiasm was a form of meditation called Headspace, a mobile phone app for those with cluttered minds. At 14, Daley went to Beijing as the boy king of British diving. Now he is approaching his third O

lympics as the “grandad” of Tea

m GBs squad and relishing his chance to administer a little Chinese torture.

All those things are really what helped me fall back in love with the sport.” Daley was a consulta

You will be happy to know that everything stays in place, as it should. “I showed them to Graham Norton on his chat show, and he was a bit surprised by the size of them when I held them up – but of course, they do stretch when you put them on.” Daley, whose father Rob died in May 2011, admits he will be diving in memory of his dad here, and a large contingent – including his partner, Oscar-winning Hollywood screenplay writer Dustin Lance Black - have already flown in to support him. But he is an impressively articulate 22-year-old, light years removed from grunting Premier League footballers, and he cuts a relaxed figure for an athlete who suffered the mother of all hangovers from London 2012.

I didnt want to step up on a diving board again, I was really struggling. “Thats why doing something different and mixing it up really helped me.

championships, but in that week I had a taste of what it was like to be a normal 18-year-old, and I really liked it. “I just wasnt ready to come back, and then in 2013 I was injured a lot so my coach gave me the summer off to go and travel. “Thats when I did a lot of thinking and things have been looking up again – at 18 or 19, most people are thinking of going to university, and that break was exactly what I needed.” Tom Daley (Image: PA) Read MoreRelated ArticlesJessica Ennis-Hill makes decision on whether husband and son travel to Rio Daley, who launches his Rio campaign in the synchronised 10m platform final on Monday, is sporting a familiar insignia on his right bicep – a tattoo of the five Olympic rings. He revealed: “In Beijing I

was 14, so I was too young to get a tattoo, so I got a gold Olympic ring instead. But for my 18 birthday, my mum wrote in my card, I owe you a tattoo – but I dont know what Im going to do after Rio. “Maybe Ill have an exotic Brazilian cocktail because I havent had a drink for two years, Ive been teetotal since September 2014. “I wanted to go into this Olympics in the best shape possible and I dont regret anything going into these Games.
