World Champion, European Champion, Commonwealth Champion, and still only seventeen years old, diving ace Tom Daley has achieved more than most professional sportsmen could ever dream of in a lifetime. This talented young sportsman's career has been fascinating to follow from the start - Daley began competing in diving competitions at the age of eight at his local diving club in Plymouth, and he has been setting records ever since - gaining four gold medals and two silver medals in the last two years, along with an army of fans the world over. Recently named by "Vogue" magazine as 'one of the people who will define the coming decade', this highly anticipated biography tells the inspirational story of this 'boy-next-door', through his punishing training regime and his love of competing, to his brave stand against school bullying and his hopes for London 2012.
