  • Hi guys, so most of you are probably wondering why I am doing this video.

  • Well, my life has been bit of a roller coaster, to say the least, over the last couple of years.

  • I mean, losing my dad to cancer in 2011 was one of the hardest things I have ever had to deal with in my life.

  • And then winning an Olympic medal last year, in 2012, in front of a home crowd.

  • Finishing my A-levels this year. It's been hectic.

  • Well, one thing that I consider pretty important is to have some form of private life.

  • You are probably thinking, why did you do a book

  • and why did you do a documentary and all that kind of stuff,

  • but I've only ever talked about things that I felt comfortable talking about.

  • When I was younger I hated talking about the bullying situation at school,

  • and I didn't like talking about my dad because obviously at the time it was a sensitive subject.

  • But I mean, it's one of those things that in an ideal world I wouldn't be doing this video because it shouldn't matter.

  • But recently I was misquoted in an interview, and it made me feel really angry

  • and frustrated and emotions I have never felt before when reading something about myself.

  • For me, honesty is something that I really do believe in.

  • And I have always been honest. I may have been vague in some of my answers, but I have always been honest.

  • And one thing I have never really felt that comfortable talking about are my relationships,

  • because it's what I get asked even if I'm doing sporting interviews is, do you have girlfriend,

  • who are you seeing, all of that kind of stuff. And I, I've been dating girls and I've never really had a serious relationship to talk about.

  • And now I kind of feel ready to talk about my relationships.

  • Come spring of this year my life changedmassivelywhen I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe,

  • and everything just feels great, and well, that someone is a guy.

  • And it did take me by surprise a little bit

  • It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen,

  • but it wasn't until spring this year that something that just clicked, it felt right, and I was like, OK.

  • And like I said my whole world just changed right there and then.

  • Of course I still fancy girls, but right now I'm dating a guy and I couldn't be happier.

  • I just feel safe. And it just really does feel right.

  • People are going to have their own opinions, and I think people are going to make a big deal of this.

  • I mean, is it a big deal? Well, I don't think so.

  • People will call me a liar. People, I mean, it's going to be big, but I wanted to say something,

  • and I feel like now I'm ready, and I wanted to do it.

  • People will think what will your dad say, what would your dad would have said,

  • he always said to me, as long as you are happy, I'm happy.

  • And right now I couldn't be happier. My mom has been so supportive as well.

  • I could count the number of people I've told on my hand.

  • But all of my friends and family that I've told have been so supportive, which has been great.

  • But I told the rest of my family today, and let's just say there are mixed opinions.

  • Lots of them didn't believe it. Lots of them wanted me to keep it quiet.

  • Some said why don't you just do a statement, why don't you do a magazine cover,

  • why don't you do a TV interview, but I didn't want to get my words twisted,

  • I wanted to put an end to all the rumors and speculation and just say it and tell you guys.

  • You know, it's what I want to do. My friends and family are always there to support me, and I hope you guys can be too.

  • I'm still Tom. I still want to win an Olympic gold medal in Rio 2016 for Great Britain.

  • I am still as motivated as ever to do that, and it would be great to have you guys on that journey too.

  • But I just wanted to make sure that I got to tell you guys before I head off to Houston

  • for a training camp that I've got up until Christmas.

  • So, I'm glad that I got it off my chest.

  • I hope you can join me on my journey to Rio 2016 too.

Hi guys, so most of you are probably wondering why I am doing this video.
