Tom Daley
In the first 10m platform rankings after Beijing, Daley was rated fourth.

Tom Daley is one of six Olympians in an 11-strong Great Britain diving team for the World Championships in Rome.

The diving events open the Championships on 17 July and they culminate with the swimming events from 26 July to 2 August.

Synchronised competitions take place from 18-25 July, with the Open Water competition from 19-25 July.
