Olympic Dreams - Tom Daley
Age 13, Diving
Born Plymouth, dives for Plymouth Diving Club

How many sporting stars become U-18 champion aged 10, or are given special permission to compete at the Youth Olympics because they are three years under the minimum age limit?

Since trying diving at the age of seven, Daley has been making quite a splash in a sport which he describes as "controlled falling".

'Diver boy' (as his school mates call him) won the 10m individual and synchro platform, with friend Callum Johnstone, at the recent Senior National Championships.
