Daley seals Olympic place
Tom Daley hoped he had done his late father proud after he booked his place at the London Olympics on Sunday.
Daley confirmed he will be one of the faces of this summer's showpiece with the most comfortable of wins in the 10 metre platform at the British Gas Diving Championships in Sheffield.
While the 18-year-old was unable to break his personal best of 565.05, which he set when reclaiming the European title last month, he did more than enough to ensure he was already decked out in a Team GB tracksuit before leaving Ponds Forge.
The Sheffield venue had set an emotional stage for Daley as it was the pool his father Robert last saw him compete before his death following a long battle with brain cancer last May.
Robert Daley had been a permanent fixture alongside his son at all his competitions and had pledged to see his son compete in London this summer.
"It's great to know that I have qualified and he will be proud of what I have done," Daley said. "It feels great to actually win here in front of my mum and my brothers, obviously it is sad that my dad is not here.
"It's just such a great feeling to know you are going to the Olympic Games because it is what every athlete wants."
Britain's Olympic diving team will be confirmed in an announcement on Monday lunchtime, with only a few positions up in the air.
The women's 3m springboard is one of those after Sunday's winner Rebecca Gallantree failed to make the qualifying mark in an unusually poor preliminary round. The City of Leeds diver responded though with a British record and personal best 326.05 to wrap up her fourth domestic title.
Gallantree must now await Monday's announcement, with teenage duo Hannah Starling and Alicia Blagg also in contention.
