Tonia Couch and Lois Toulson won gold in the women’s 10metre synchronized diving at the British Championships in Edinburgh.

City of Leeds diver Toulson and Couch of Plymouth Diving used their high-level experience to top the podium with a total of 307.26 points, with Southampton Diving pair Tanya Watson and Lucy Hawkins taking silver with a score of 256.74.

“We dived pretty well,” Couch said. “We weren’t really focusing on where we finished but how we performed today. I think we did a good job so we’re really pleased.

“I was a little bit nervous as I feel like I’ve not been diving well but it was nice to be next to Lois and I feel like I’m better when I’m next to her.”

Brothers Jack and Ross Haslam (City of Sheffield) took the gold medal in the three-metre springboard synchro with a total of 393.30 points despite a strong performance from City of Sheffield’s Freddie Woodward and home favourite James Heatly, who won silver.

“That was one of our best performances in terms of score,” Jack said. “To score over 70 points on all of our optional dives is great so we’re really happy with that. It was pretty amazing competing with my brother.”

Toulson continued her good form at the Royal Commonwealth Pool by winning the preliminary round in the women’s 10m platform, where the final will take place on Sunday, while Dan Goodfellow topped the men’s 3m springboard preliminary standings.
