About Login
There is a very strong case for Daley to be regarded as Britain’s greatest ever athlete. Others may have set more world records or won more championships but his ability to perform—and so very often succeed—under the greatest of pressure set him apart. As it was he did win two Olympic, three Commonwealth, two European and the inaugural World title—so not a bad collection!— and was unbeaten in completed Decathlons from the 1978 European champs until the 1987 worlds. Firstly a sprinter he won AAA U20 titles at 60m and 100m whilst still only 16 and then made rapid progress as an all rounder to make the Olympic team for the Decathlon at just 17. A world class long jumper and in the mid 80’s a regular in the GB 4x100 squad there seemed no event he couldn’t do well but it was the Decathlon at which he became globally famous. Brilliantly able to repel the huge German challenge of the day—most notably Jurgen Hingsen who faced him on ten occasions, losing every time.
