Screen shot 2016-08-02 at 11.05.41 AM

Great Britain has no shortage of talent competing in diving at the Summer Olympics with 11 qualified competitors, but the one you guys will definitely want to see is Tonia Couch.

Couch, who is a former gymnast, missed out on a medal at the 2012 London games finishing fifth in synchronized diving. This summer, however, she’ll have two opportunities to medal competing in 10-meter synchronized (with Lois Tolson) and individual 10-meter platform.


Couch and Tolson should be an interesting watch considering they’ve been partners for less than eight months.

You guys can catch Couch compete in synchro on Aug. 9 and again on Aug. 17 for 10-meter individual prelims.
