Swimming: Daley out of individuals

DIVER Tom Daley will not compete in the individual platform at next week’s FINA World Cup in London as he instead focuses on his synchro partnership with Peter Waterfield.

British Swimming has decided to limit their participation to the team event as they look to get a much-needed workout following an injury-interrupted couple of months.

The duo’s Olympic preparations have been hindered by injury – Waterfield was out for two months with a side problem – and a barren international calendar that has meant they have not competed together since finishing sixth in the World Championships last July.

With both having already confirmed their Olympic place – next week’s meet is a final qualifier for London – they will use the competition as practice.
