[Tom Daley – Something I Want To Say]
[Thomas Robert “Tom” Daley (21 May 1994)]
Hi, guys. So most of you are probably wondering why I’m doing this video. And my life has been a bit of a rollercoaster, to say the least, over the last couple of years. I mean losing my dad to cancer in 2011 was the one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to deal with in my life. And then winning an Olympic medal last year in 2012 in front of a home crowd, finishing my A-levels this year, I mean, it’s been hectic.
One thing that I consider to be pretty important is to have some form of private life. And, I mean you’re probably thinking, well, why did you do a book? Why did you do a documentary and all that kind of stuff? But I’ve only ever talked about things that I feel comfortable talking about. I mean like when I was younger I hated talking about the bullying situation at school. I didn’t like talking about my dad because obviously at the time it was a sensitive subject but, I mean, it’s one of those things that, well, in an ideal world I wouldn’t be doing this video because it shouldn’t matter.
But recently I was misquoted in an interview and it made me feel really angry and frustrated and, you know, emotions I’ve never felt before when reading anything about myself. And for me honesty is something I really do believe in and I’ve always been honest. I may have been, don’t know, vague in some of my answers, but I’ve always been honest. And one thing I’ve never really felt that comfortable talking about are my relationships because that’s what I get asked, even if I’m doing sporting interviews, it’s, do you have a girlfriend? Who are you seeing? All that kind of stuff.

And I’ve been dating girls and I’ve never really had a serious relationship to talk about and now I kind of feel ready to talk about my relationships. And you know, come spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe, and everything just feels great. And, well, that someone is a guy. And it did take me by surprise a little bit. I mean, it was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn’t until spring this year that something just clicked. It felt right and I was like, okay. And like I said, my whole world just changed right there and then. And you know, of course I still fancy girls, but, I mean, right now I’m dating a guy and I couldn’t be happier. It feels safe and it just really does feel right.
And people are going to have their opinions and I think people are going to make a big deal of this. I mean is it a big deal? I don’t think so. And people will call me a liar, people – I mean, it’s going to be, you know, big, but I wanted to say something and I feel like now I’m ready and I wanted to do it. And people will think, ‘what did your dad say or what would your dad have said?’ I mean he always said to me, ‘as long as you’re happy, I’m happy,’ and right now I couldn’t be happier. My mum’s been so supportive as well. I mean I can count the number of people I’ve told on my hand, but all my friends and family I’ve told have been so supportive, which has been great.
But I told the rest of my family today and, well, let’s just say they had mixed opinions. Lots of them, well, didn’t believe it. Lots of them wanted me to keep it quiet. Some said, ‘why don’t you do a statement? Why don’t you do a magazine cover? Why don’t you do a TV interview?’ But I mean I don’t want my words twisted. I wanted to put an end to all the rumors, the speculation and just say it and just tell you guys because, you know, it’s what I want to do.

And I mean my friends and family are always there to support me and I hope you guys can be too. I mean I’m still Tom. I still want to win an Olympic gold medal in Rio 2016 for Great Britain. I’m still as motivated as ever to do that and it would be great to have you guys on that journey too, you know, but I just wanted to make sure that I tell you guys before I head off to Houston for a training camp that I’ve got up until Christmas. So I’m glad I’ve got it off my chest and I hope you can join me on my journey to Rio 2016 too.
