New diving partner for Daley

Diver Tom Daley

British diving star Tom Daley has named his new diving partner as 17 year-old Max Brick.

Max will replace Blake Aldridge, whose partnership with Tom ended after the Beijing Olympics.

Tom and Max will make their debut together later in April in the World Series competition in Sheffield.

Tom and Blake hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons when it was reported that they fell out after their poor performance at the Beijing Olympics.

Tom and Blake came last in the 10m synchronised diving contest in China.

Tom is said to have got cross with Blake for phoning his mum during the competition and not concentrating on their next dive, while Blake blamed Tom for their disappointing performance.
