After winning bronze in the Olympics, Tom Daley plans to “drink margaritas” before deciding on his Olympic and diving future.
Tom Daley won a bronze medal in the men’s 10-meter platform at Tokyo 2020… Tom Daley has declined to say whether Tokyo 2020 will be his final Olympic Games, instead stating that he plans to take a long vacation after proving his health. The 27-year-old became the first British diver to win four medals at the Games in the men’s 10-meter platform event this morning.
Daley was on the verge of winning his second gold medal when his fourth dive opened the door for Chinese team Yang Jian and Yuan Cao.
Daley, on the other hand, fought back to keep his spot on the podium, building on his gold in the men’s synchronised 10m with Matty Lee last week.
During the final, commentator Chris Wear stated that this could be Daley’s final Olympic Games.
“Who knows if we’ll see him again!” he exclaimed.
” When asked about his plans for the future, Daley stated that he intends to take a break from the sport.
With a smile, Daley told the BBC, “I’m definitely going to have a big break, a couple of margaritas, and a bit of a chill out.”
“I’m going to take a break from diving; I feel like 2018 was my low point, and now I’m getting back on track.
“I’m feeling okay, my body is feeling well, so we’ll see,” Daley said earlier this year, admitting he didn’t know if he’d be attending this year’s Games.
The Plymouth native tore his meniscus in his knee and had to have surgery only a few weeks ago in June.
Despite this, he persisted in proving his fitness following his all-or-nothing procedure, and now his efforts have paid off.
“Honestly, I am overjoyed with how this Olympics has turned out,” he added.
“I feel like a new athlete, and I’ve been through so much in my life to get here.
“At the end of May, I didn’t know if I’d be able to compete in these Olympics.
“I was informed I needed knee surgery, and I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to recover in time to compete in diving at the Olympics.
“I would have laughed in their face if they told me I was going to win a gold and a bronze.
“I.” says the narrator of “Brinkwire Summary News.”
