Tom Daley Fails to Qualify to Olympic Swimming Final

Seems like queers are not the greatest. Tom Daley was adulated when he decided to become homosexual a couple of years ago. Shame he just failed to make the Olympic final. 

Rio Olympics 2016: Tom Daley fails to qualify for Olympic final

Britain’s Tom Daley said he was “heartbroken” after suffering a shock semi-final elimination in the Olympic 10m platform diving competition.

In an error-strewn display, the 2012 bronze medallist needed 102 points on his closing dive to reach the final.

However, he only managed 50.40 to end in last place with 403.25 – well short of the personal best of 571.85 he set in Friday’s preliminary round.

“It’s really hard to accept. I’ve worked so hard,” said Daley, 22.

“Yesterday I scored the highest score ever in an Olympic Games. Today it wasn’t meant to be. That’s what diving does sometimes.

“I truly am heartbroken because I feel like I am in the peak physical condition and I could have won tonight.”

China’s Chen Aisen was top with 559.90, over 150 points ahead of the Briton.

British Diving’s performance director had said Daley was “in the best shape and best form of his career” ahead of the Rio Olympics.

Daley won a bronze medal in the 10m synchronised event in Rio with partner Dan Goodfellow, and suggested he would compete again in Tokyo in 2020.

“I’m so happy with how GB have done, so proud to be part of it and I wanted to be able to stand on top of that podium, so it will be another four years’ hard work,” he said.
