Tearful Tom Daley was at a loss to explain how his bid for Olympic gold in Rio unravelled so spectacularly after failing to qualify for the final of the 10 metres platform event.The 22-year-old from Plymouth looked well placed to improve on his London 2012 bronze after placing first in Fridays preliminary round.But he endured a poor first three rounds of the semifinal at Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre and his inability to recover in the remaining three meant he suffered the ignominy of finishing last of the 18 competitors, with the top 12 making it through.Today I dont really know what went wrong. Ive no idea, Daley said.Ive been feeling so good. Trainings been going really well, Im in the shape of my life, moving better than Ive ever moved before and last night showed that.I was fighting until the end. Every single dive, if I missed a dive, Id move on to the next one.I was constantly trying to fight to be up there, improve my place and fight to try to qualify for the final.When it came to the last dive and I needed 9.5s and 10s to qualify, I know I can do that.I gave it my everything and tried my absolute best. Its just heartbreaking to think that four years of hard work and effort... its tough to accept.Daley had boldly claimed he would be satisfied with nothing less than gold from his individual event.And despite his serene qualification, featuring six near-flawless dives and a total score of 571.85 points, he floundered in the semi-final.Diving last of the 18 competitors, Daley had to make the top 12 to qualify for Saturday evenings final.Daley scored 34 points less on his firework dive -- a forward three and a half somersaults one twist with pike - than he did a day previously, with his second dive.And he was 15th entering the final round on 352.85 points, a deficit of almost 20 points to 12th place.Daley needed to score better than 101.00 to go through but finished with only a score of 50.40 and a total of 403.25.United States David Boudia, the London 2012 gold medallist, was 13th entering the final round, but squeezed through in 10th place.Chinas Chen Aisen led the way with 559.90 and Qiu Bo was second with 504.70. It meant China were on course for a seventh gold of the diving competition.China had won six of the seven completed events at the Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre so far this week, with Jack Laugher and Chris Mears win in the synchronised 3m springboard event the exception. Laugher also won silver in the individual event.Daley insisted he would continue on until Tokyo.To think that Team GB diving has already got three medals from this Games is just incredible, he added.It definitely gives you a massive kick in motivation to want to stand on top of the podium in 2020.Custom Kings Jerseys .
