Daley to return to competition

Tom Daley will be back in the pool this summer as he gets ready to compete in the Youth Olympics in Singapore.

The World Championship Gold medal winner has been out of action for four months because of injury.

But now he will be part of a 40 strong GB team which will compete in the event.

In total 3,600 of the world's top boys and girls take part, competing in 26 different sports which make up the proper Olympics.

The games take place between the 14 - 26 August and it's hoped the competition will encourage more young people to get involved with sport.

Along with over 3,000 competitors the athletes will be joined by 1,450 officials, 20,000 local and international volunteers, and more than 370,000 spectators!
