Gomersal girl on way to Rio

LOCAL diver Lois Toulson has been selected to represent team GB at this year’s Rio Olympics.

The 16-year-old will compete for her country alongside the likes of experienced Olympians Tom Daley and Tonia Couch, who have also been named in the GB diving squad.

The Gomersal-based athlete, who is a pupil at Whitcliffe Mount School, has earned her place in Rio off the back of a fantastic 2015 season when she became the European Games 10m platform gold medalist in Bakufollowing on from her 10m platform success at the British Championships.

Toulson, who has been diving since the age of seven, also bagged medals on the senior grand prix circuit.

And earlier this year Toulson was paired with Couch in the 10 metre synchronised event at the World Series.
