Tom Daley to lead 11-strong Olympic GB diving team to Rio 2016

Tom Daley leads Team GB's 11-strong diving team for the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Olympic bronze medallist Tom Daley will be aiming for gold when he leads an 11-strong Team GB diving squad to Rio 2016.

The 22-year-old, who secured a place on the podium at London 2012, will be competing in his third Olympic Games.

Tonia Couch will also be returning for a third time, while Chris Mears, Jack Laugher, Alicia Blagg, Rebecca Gallantree and Sarah Barrow are all experienced at Olympic level.

Debutants Lois Toulson, Daniel Goodfellow, Freddie Woodward and Grace Reid make up the team.

"I've really loved competing through the last two years and got really promising results at the World Championships and European Championships," Daley told PA.

"To have the confirmation that I'm going to my third Olympic Games is really exciting. Rio was amazing when we went in February and I can't wait to go back and see what the pool will look like."

Daley won two golds and a silver medal at the 2016 European Championships in London.
