Teen diving sensation Tom Daley is the youngest person competing for Great Britain in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

He'll be just 14 years and 81 days old when the games kick off in August.

So far this year, Tom's already won six gold medals at the British Championships in Manchester and another at the Europeans in Eindhoven.

He's the youngest ever senior 10m platform champion and last year was crowned as the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year 2007.

Tom isn't quite the youngest male ever to represent GB at the Olympics, but he's still in with a chance of becoming Britain's youngest male medallist.
