Tom Daley & Dan Goodfellow Train For Diving Synch Event in Rio

Tom Daley and Dan Goodfellow prepare for their dual dive during a training session at the Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre on Thursday (August 4) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

For the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, the Team Great Britain divers will compete in their first event — Men’s Synchronized 10m Platform event — on Monday, August 8th.

“After the last Olympics, I didn’t want to dive again,” Tom revealed recently. “I had the biggest post-Games slump you can imagine. I just never wanted to set foot on a diving board so doing something different and mixing it up really helped me.”

He added, “Even now, going into the Olympics, I have cut lots of things back but I like to do other things like cooking classes and Spanish classes. I end up thinking a bit too much about diving so I need to keep my busy mind occupied.”
