London: Tom Daley may quit diving this year after the Commonwealth Games to avoid the Olympics in 2016.

The 20-year-old Olympic swimmer may retire from the sport as he is afraid that he won`t win a medal at the next Olympics, the Daily Star reported.

Sources revealed that Daley is convinced that his form and his back twist "phobia" would keep him from clinching another Olympic medal at Rio 2016 .

It was earlier reported that he is undergoing therapy to try to overcome the issue with his "terrifying" twist dive.

Daley is set to compete in the 10m Platform on August 2 at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
