A post shared by Tom Daley (@tomdaley)Tom Daley is back in the pool, and picking up right where he left off. The iconic Olympian competed recently at the British National Diving Cup, and won gold in the 10-meter platform synchro event with his new partner, Noah Williams.

It was the first time Daley has competed since Tokyo 2020, when he took home his first Olympic gold.

I feel really happy, I’m enjoying it and that’s the main thing.”It’s been more than two years since Daley stepped away from diving, and even longer since he’s competed in front of fans.

Spectators were barred from the Tokyo Games, due to COVID restrictions.“It was weird to dive in front of a crowd with people – last time I competed, there was nobody there in Tokyo,” said Daley. “It is very nice to be back and get that adrenaline going again.”The 29-year-old superstar decided to return to diving over the summer, after he visited the U.S.
