Peter Waterfield, Tom Daley's synchro

Cup in London's Olympic pool.

suffered with injuries this winter but after qualifying only 16th for
the semis and ninth for the final he produced a remarkable final dive to
grab his first individual global podium place.

Performance director Alexei Evangulov and head of British Swimming David Sparkes have both criticised Daley for being distracted by media work, a problem Waterfield does not have.

The two divers get a short break now before continuing on the world circuit, heading to Dubai, China, Moscow and Mexico.

The crunch comes in Sheffield at the British trials in June.
