Born in 1998, the athlete competes on the 10-meter podium in both individual and synchronized diving. He has been competing since 2012 in the children’s championship.
In 2015, Lee won his first adult gold medal at the European Games and again at the 2017 European Diving Championships.
He began competing with Tom Daley in 2018, when the pair won a bronze medal at the 2019 Underwater World Championships.
Olympic glory came to the 23-year-old this summer at Tokyo 2020, when Lee and Daley won gold in the 10-meter synchronized diving event.
However, the year is about to get better for Lee, who admits: “My two childhood dreams were to win an Olympic medal and be in my favorite TV series. And now I’m doing both this year! ”
Talking about his decision to enter the castle, he said: “I am really looking forward to the Challenge and also, being around different people will be fun. I’m used to just being around athletes.
“I thought I would definitely freak out with the rats and I knew I was going to scream. Altitude won’t be an issue though! Apparently I’m used to diving down to 10 meter planks. ”
