Thousands of athletes will compete for gold this August during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil — but not all of them are household names. British diver Tom Daley is. 

The 22-year-old diver competed at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, where he set the record as the youngest British Olympian in history, and the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, where he won bronze. Daley is back again this summer, and the pressure is on to see if Daley can take home the games' highest honor.

Daley will dive in both the men's 10-meter platform and the men's synchronized 10-meter platform, according to the Telegraph. The final for the men's synchronized 10-meter platform diving competition will begin at 3 p.m Eastern on Aug. 8, and the final round of the men's 10-meter platform will begin at 3 p.m. Eastern on Aug. 20.
