Early Life

Tom Daley was born Thomas Robert Daley on May 21, 1994, in Plymouth, Devon, England. He grew up with mother Debbie, father Robert, and younger brothers William and Ben. Sadly, when Tom was 17, his father passed away from a brain tumor. Daley began diving at just 7 years old and joined a competitive squad in 2002. He won a medal in his first competition, the National Novice Championships, in 2003, and later that year, he won the platform, 1m, and 3m events at an invitational event in Southampton. In 2004, 2005, and 2006, Tom won the platform, 1m springboard, and 3m springboard in his age group at the British Championships.

At age 10, Daley became the youngest person to win the National Junior platform competition, and in 2005, he competed in the Australian Elite Junior Nationals and the Aachen Junior International. In 2006, he was the British under-18 champion in both the 3m springboard and platform, and at the 2007 British Championships, he finished second in the 10m platform. Tom attended Eggbuckland Community College, and at age 13, he became a supporter of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children's helpline, Childline, and in 2009, his father revealed that Daley had been bullied at Eggbuckland. Though Brighton College offered Tom a full scholarship, his father turned it down because it was too far away, and Daley enrolled at Plymouth College instead.
