Brit diver Tom Daley 'not up for a relationship'
London, May 24 (ANI): Olympic hopeful Tom Daley has said that he is "not up for a relationship", as he prefers to focus on his medal dream rather than being pestered by lovestruck teenage girls.
The 18-year-old diver said that he did not have time for a girlfriend to ring him up "every ten seconds" to berate him for not calling, and could not spend his days enjoying himself at her house.
Instead, he hopes to fulfil his long-held dream of an Olympic medal in the London Games this summer, dedicating his time to training.
Despite his reluctance to enter into a serious romance, he also revealed he had pursued American diver Mary Beth Dunnichay while just aged 14 at the Beijing Olympics, sneaking into her accommodations to give her a "proper kiss".
In his new autobiography, "My Story", he tells how he even feigned a questionable American accent to fool the authorities, after he was caught out in the wrong apartments.
He wrote he had "got on really well" with the young female diver, saying; "Mary Beth and I exchanged a few flirty texts, which made my day!"
After his performance with partner Black Aldridge, in which they publicly fell out when mistakes left them in eighth place, he said: "I spent more time with Mary Beth.
"I had been told she really liked me and I liked her, too. I wanted to kiss her but I ended up just giving her a peck on the cheek.
"Back in our apartments, [teammate] Tonia told me I should have gone for it, so I walked to Mary Beth's room and I gave her a proper kiss, which was amazing.
"On my way back I was told off for being in the Americans' accommodation, so I put on an American accent. I don't think it worked," he said.
Despite his youthful crush, he has now said he will be concentrating on his Olympic dream.
"It's my dream to go to the Olympic Games and win a medal and I know I'm not going to be able to do that if I'm constantly going to a girlfriend's house and her ringing up every ten seconds saying: 'Why haven't you called me today?'" the Telegraph quoted him as saying in an interview with the Guardian
"I'm not up for a relationship," he said. (ANI)
