Diving: Daley seeks to build new partnership with Brick

The British diving champion Tom Daley has found a new partner and they will make their competitive debut at the World Series in Sheffield later this month. Daley's father Rob told BBC Sport that Max Brick, 17, will replace Blake Aldridge, after his partnership with Daley ended following the Olympics. "There are only a few candidates in the UK anywhere near Tom's level," he said. "It was just a case of waiting until he was ready – he's a good match for Tom, as close as anybody is going to be."

Inside Lines: Gordon gets volley of protest from forgotten sports of 2012 funding

Pleas to Downing Street usually get short shrift – ask the friends of still plain Mister Bruce Forsyth – but the lower echelons of British sport are hoping that their protest to the PM over the absence of pre-2012 funding won't be given the seasonal Scrooge treatment by a grumpy Gordon. Organised by the volleyball player Lucy Wicks, a petition set up on the No 10 website has over 2,000 signatures from representatives of the eight Olympic sports, including volleyball (in whichBritain make their world championships debut in Sheffield this weekend), table tennis and shooting, that have missed out on a share of the £292 million given to other sports featuring in 2012. Not until the end of the month will they know if they will get a few crumbs from the table – if anything, says Wicks, 26. "All sports for which funding has not been clarified find their programmes threatened, and we are now in danger of being unable to pursue our dreams of competing in 2012. Our dedication is being ignored. We want the Government to keep its promises to help us provide a legacy."

Inside Lines: More writs than right-handers as Olympians threaten to sue

Two of Britain's Beijing ring heroes, James DeGale and Tony Jeffries, and head coach Terry Edwards are threatening legal action against the Amateur Boxing Association. The two boxers, who have now turned pro, are poised to sue over bonuses they claim were promised before the Olympics but have not been paid. The pair have given ABA bosses until tomorrow evening to arrange a meeting to settle the situation, otherwise they will issue writs. DeGale says he is due £20,000 as a gold medallist and Jeffries £5,000 for his bronze. They are also demanding an apology from ABA president Richard Caborn, who accused them of "biting the hand that feeds them". Edwards has taken legal advice and will seek damages unless the ABA chief executive, Paul King, retracts comments made in a radio interview last week when he said the coach was informed by letter before the Games that the medal bonus scheme had been withdrawn. "This is blatantly untrue," says Edwards. "There was no communication whatsoever." He meets Derek Mapp, chair of the newly formed British Amateur Boxing Association this week, to discuss his future but he looks certain to quit. Embarrassingly for the umbrella body, Irish coach Gary Keegan has again turned down an offer to become the sport's performance director. "We have a few management problems to resolve," Mapp admits.

Daley lives to dive another day after taking an early tumble

Tonight, sometime around 9pm local time – 2pm in the UK – China will in all probability complete a clean sweep of the diving medals in the eighth and last event contested here at the Water Cube. That is certainly what the host nation was expecting last night, after Zhou Luxin stormed through in first place from the preliminary round of the 10-metre platform event. China has taken gold in all seven of the completed diving events.

The 15-year-old scored an astonishing 100.30 with the final dive of the competition to beat Canada's Emilie Heymans into second and complete a clean sweep of diving medals for the home nation.
