You should always fight to achieve your goal. Tom Daley did everything to be a winner and finally he got what he wanted. He has been crowned 10m diving world champion. The husband to Dustin Lance Black claimed his first major title in eight years. It comes after a disappointing Olympic performance in Rio when he missed out on gold for the third Games in a row.
The 23-year-old’s victory came in the 10m platform final in the World Aquatics Championship held in Budapest. He was crowned champion with a score of 590.95, beating Olympic champion Chen Aisen of China who came in with a tally of 585.25. Agonisingly, the score would have bagged him gold in the Rio Olympics last year.
Daley told the BBC: “It’s been such a tough year getting over that competition in Rio. “I’m just so happy with the way it turned out. “My score was a personal best and I think it would have got the gold last year at the Olympics.” Husband Dustin Lance Black, who married Daley in a stunning “fairytale” castle wedding ceremony, paid an emotional tribute following the win.
