Daley delighted to make 10m final
HID Olympics 2012,
Tom Daley says he "has proved a point" after qualifying for the men's 10m diving final following a much-improved performance.
Daley had been below-par on Friday night and needed to up his game in Saturday morning's semi-final at the Aquatics Centre in London.
He did just that and comfortably progressed through to the Olympic final, scheduled to take place at 8.30pm on Saturday evening, and the Team GB star was delighted with his morning's work.
"That was a lot better than yesterday, That's the thing with diving, anything can happen, as you've seen with the Olympic champion not qualifying," he said.
"After knowing the disappointment from the synchro, I really wanted to prove a point. Last night was tough to get through all that competition but I'm happy and anything can happen tonight."
He added: "I'm gradually getting sharper and sharper, it's hard to compete when you know it doesn't count to medals but now I have qualified I'm going to give it my best shot tonight."
