Tom Daley wins his first World Championship medal in six years

Plymouth's Tom Daley has won a bronze medal in the 10 metre platform final at World Diving Championships in Russia.

Daley qualified third for this evening's final, high on confidence after winning gold in the mixed team event on Thursday. It's the first medal Daley has won since his, and at the time Britain's only-ever, individual diving World Championship gold medal in 2009, when he was just 15.

Since then his other major success was a bronze at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The medal shows he is on course to compete in Rio next year.

Plymouth diver Tom Daley has scooped a gold medal in the team event at the World Aquatics Championships.

He was competing alongside fellow British diver Rebecca Gallantree in Russia.

It's the first time Britain have claimed two medals at a World diving championship event.

Tom Daley dives in to help sharks

No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you, there really is a person under there - and yes, it really is Tom Daley!

The Plymouth diving champ transformed himself into the ocean predator ahead of Shark Week at the beginning of August. The striking piece of body art took two specialists four hours to complete, and runs the full length of his body. The Olympic diver’s five-foot-nine frame was covered from head to toe in a water-based paint, with the design created by British body painting artist, Emma Fay.

I’ve always been really fascinated by sharks. They’re incredible marine animals, but not always in the news for the right reasons.

Sharks play a vital role to the health of the ocean. They keep fish populations balanced and protect habitats. Without sharks, the health of the ocean ecosystem would completely change.

– Tom Daley

Tom created a video documenting his whole day.

The athlete teamed up with SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment to create the shark along the full length of his body.

Sharks’ greatest threats come from humans. Millions of sharks are killed each year for their fins and as commercial fishing bycatch. Ocean pollution and a decrease in food supply also are threatening many species of sharks.
