    Tbh I am quite pleased as a sportsman he was massively overrated and constantly trying to promote himself a bit like Louis Smith. Even though he did well in the preliminary he still failed on the day so we should stop hearing about him.

    So you were rooting for him to come last or something?

    He didn't just do well in the preliminary he produced a score of 571.85. He has talent and he knows it was no where near his best performance today in the semi-finals. But when someone of that talent doesn't make the final after an amazing performance of course we are going to hear about it!

    It's sort of disgusting to see people say they're thrilled for people going out

    I disagree with him being "overrated".

    He didn't just do well in the preliminary he got an olympic record. He has talent and he knows it was no where near his best performance today in the semi-finals. But when someone of that talent doesn't make the final after an amazing performance of course we are going to hear about it! If a top sprinter goes out in a heat in the semi's, it isn't the last you hear about it.
    no I mean we heard about him a lot way before the preliminaries in a way we don't hear about other athletes that are doing really well

    Thrilled to see him and his giant ego out. Hopefully now the media will concentrate on the actual successful divers instead of this loser.

    I completely agree with you about Louis Smith too. Ever since he (undeservedly) won Strictly he's been constantly trying to get his name in the press. He obviously cares more about being a celebrity than being a successful Olympian.
