Olympic champ and lovable imp Tom Daley is hiding in your Googles!
Take a walking tour of the London Aquatics Centre in Stratford, and climb all the way up to the edge of the diving platform, and bam — Tom is standing there nonchalantly, spread eagle, ready to plunge into the pool. Or to allow passers-by to sniff his armpits. Whatever.
It’s all part of Google’s mission to catalog all of the world’s information. In this case, the information is that Tom Daley is a god among men. Now you are aware of it.
Tom, you are surely aware, has been in the news frequently as of late. Not because he’s been doing any particularly newsworthy diving, but because he is just so beautiful and fun that you will click on any headline that has his name in it. If we wrote “Tom Daley Mows His Lawn, not the Diver but Some Other Regular Guy Who Just Happens to Have the Same Name,” you’d be reading that article right now.
Nevertheless, no Tom Daley article would be complete without a photo gallery, so here’s what you’ve been waiting for: a gallery of diving boards!
Hahaha, just kidding, here’s a bunch of pictures of Tom, plus one bonus one of Tom Delay.
since when does winning a bronze medal make you ‘Olympic Champ’? An American- David Boudia won Tom’s event!
Since 1896 there have been 29,216 medals given out in all the Olympics up to the summer Olympics in London. Not 29,216 people mind you… 29,216 medals in total. The position of your medal on the periodic table makes little difference. If you qualify for the Olympic games; you are a Champion. If you earned a medal competing against your peers – you are an even better champion.
It’s perfectly fine not to be a fan of Daley – he’s certainly making the most of the spotlight he gained during the Summer Olympics. But putting him down for only earning Bronze?
How many olympics have you qualified for of late? How many medals?
you are delusional! Olympic champ means Olympic champ- THE champ….being at Olympics makes you an Olympian- a great honor- winining a silver or bronze makes you an Olympic medalist- an even greater honor- but there is only ONE Olympic Champ per event- period!!! I wrote it not to diminish Tom but to call out the site for CONSTANTLY shoving him down our throats by overblowing his record/resume. Greg Louganis is an Olympic Champ- so is Matt Mitcham- Tom is not on their level!!!
oh- fyi, I competed in the Junior Olympics- won a silver and 2 bronze (2 seperate years)…never considered myself a Jr. Olympic Champ- just a guy who medalled a couple times (gymnastics- knee surgery both knees at 14 ended that dream)
