Plymouth's diving hero Tom Daley has announced that he will relocate his training base to the London Aquatics Centre at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park from spring 2014.
Daley will work alongside newly appointed Jane Figueiredo as he focuses his 2016 Olympic training around the brand new centre’s world class facilities.
The London Aquatics Centre holds good memories for Daley. Not only was it where thousands of home supporters witnessed his Olympic bronze medal, Daley was also the first person to dive from the boards at the official opening of the Centre, ahead of the Olympics.
The move will see Daley leave his first coach and diving club but the country’s top diver and Andy Banks will remain close.
The former World Champion believes the time is right for a new challenge.
