Tom Daley and David Boudia compete in the Men’s 10m Platform Diving Semi-Finals on Day 15 of the 2012 Summer Olympics at the Aquatics Centre on Saturday (August 11) in London, England.

The 18-year-old British diver and the 23-year-old American athlete both moved on to the final round of diving!

Australia’s diver Matthew Mitcham, who took home gold in the Beijing Olympics, came in 13th place, but only the top 12 divers move on to the finals.

“Coming 13th and missing out by one spot is really hard,” Matthew told ESPN. “If I had come 18th it would have been easy to say, ‘Oh well, I didn’t have a chance.’”
