Sport in Brief: Champion Daley into another final
Saturday 25 July 2009
Tom Daley yesterday qualified for the final of the 10m synchro with Max Brick at the swimming world championships in Rome.
The 15-year-old took Great Britain's first gold medal of the championships earlier this week when he won the 10m platform. Yesterday he returned to the Foro Italico with his new partner after his pairing with Blake Aldridge was terminated, and the duo reached today's final in 10th place after a poor penultimate dive had dropped them from sixth.
