Tom Daly has sensationally admitted he struggles to swim!
The Olympic diver made the revelation on his YouTube and Facebook page as part of his involvement with the Volvic Touch of Fruit, Reveal Your Flavour, campaign.
Tom confessed: “I’m a terrible swimmer. That’s right, even though I’ve been diving for 15 years I still think it’s absolutely miraculous that people can stay on top of the water for a 50m length of a pool.”
“If you see me in a swimming pool instead of a diving pool you’ll probably see me struggling,” he added.
The 22 year old said he hopes his surprising revelation will inspire others to reveal theirs.
“I know how important it is to be true to who you really are. Our passions, hobbies, likes and dislikes are what make us all individual and should be celebrated. I hope that by revealing I’m a poor swimmer, contrary to expectation, it will inspire others to open up and reveal their true self,” he said.
We respect your honesty, Tom!
