Tom Daley: Airborne Grace

The FINA Diving World Cup, an international biennial diving competition, was held this past weekend in China. This year, among men, world champion He Chong of China bested teammate Cao Yuan in the 3-meter springboard, amassing a total 540.35 to capture the gold. The U.K.’s Jack Laugher placed third with an overall 488.20 points. Tom Daley, one of our personal favorites, competed well but did not rank particularly high. That's OK Tom, we still love watching you fly through the air. 

Check out photos of Tom Daley and others who competed in the graceful diving competition.
