18-year-old British diver Tom Daley lost his father last year to a brain tumor. He came into the London games looking to win a medal for his dad, but a bum attempt kept him and his partner Peter Waterfield from nabbing one in synchronized diving. But Daley showed up for the individual event and put together a string of excellent dives. When he won bronze, his teammates threw him into the water like he had just won gold. That's too awesome!
