Diving star Tom Daley will bid to win his first Olympic medal at the Aquatics Centre on Monday beside synchro partner Pete Waterfield.
All eyes will be on Daley, who was crowned world platform champion at 15 years old and recently reclaimed the European title he first won aged just 13, but he says he can cope with the pressure: "Pressure isn't a bad thing. I quite like pressure going into a competition.
"Divers either handle pressure or they don't. For me I've had pressure going into competitions for a long time now.
"It's something that I am used to. I've had the Olympic experience in Beijing and had the pressure environment from there".
The 18-year-old added: "For me pressure should bring out the best in you because you have that extra adrenaline rush."
Despite a decorated young career, an Olympic medal is the one major honour to have eluded him.
Daley and Waterfield will face a fiercely-competitive field in the high board team event, with the likes of Germany and Russia all potentials to steal gold.
But their biggest threat is from Chinese duo Cao Yuan and Zhang Yanquan, although the teenagers are short on major international experience having only taken over as China's first-choice team since last year's World Championships.
