Publisher's Summary

"An illuminating look at what it takes to be an Olympian.... In this story, passion reigns supreme." (Cosmopolitan)

"An emotionally articulate memoir...[and] an intimate insight into the good-hearted and talented young man behind the medals." (Attitude)

A deeply personal and inspiring memoir from the celebrated Olympic gold medal diver and LGBTQ+ advocate.

Tom Daley is one of the most beloved athletes of our time, having competed as a diver in four Olympics, garnering medals, and finally, in 2021 in Tokyo, winning gold. But few people know the realities of his life beyond the pool—his struggles, his secret triumphs, and the mindset he needed to cultivate to become a champion. In this deeply personal book, Tom explores the experiences that have shaped him and the qualities that brought him success and joy—from the resilience he developed competing at a world-class level, to the courage he discovered while reclaiming the narrative around his sexuality, to the perspective that family life has brought him. Inspiring, candid, and compulsively enjoyable, Coming Up for Air offers an intimate window into the life and mindset of an athlete and advocate who has left an indelible imprint on sports.
