Olympic diver Thomas Finchum retires, covers Adele's 'Someone Like You'

Former Olympic diver Thomas Finchum has retired at the ripe-old age of 22. Finchum competed for the United States in Beijing in 2008 but failed to make the Olympic team this year. He told ESPN he's loved diving, but the thought of another four years of training for the 2016 Olympic Games would have killed his love for the sport.

He's now turning his attention to a burgeoning music with his band, Northern Lights. Below we've got Finchum's really nice cover of Adele's 'Someone Like You.' Go get 'em, Thomas!
