British Decathlete, who found himself in the public eye during the 1980s, and specifically the 1980 and 1984 Olympic Games. Thompson gained notoriety by wearing T-shirts questioning the sexual preferences of his competitors during training. If I recall correctly (and I was only four at the time) he won the Decathlon for Britain in 1984. He did this by repeatedly hammering the 'M' and 'N' keys. I'm sorry, I mean by following a strict training programme. It was said at the time that "Daley is a great runner and a great jumper, and in the throwing events he's a great runner and jumper."
