Tonia Couch

Tonia Couch has become Britain's first individual female World Series medallist as she won bronze at the final leg of the Diving World Series.

Lying fourth in the final round of the 10m platform, Couch received nines and a 10 for her last dive to take third.

Couch, 24, also won silver with Sarah Barrow in the 10m synchro for the European champion pair's second successive World Series medal.

Nick Robinson-Baker and Chris Mears won bronze in the 3m synchro.

Mears also reached the individual 3m springboard final, finishing sixth while Rebecca Gallantree was sixth in the women's equivalent.

Couch, who won gold with Barrow in the British Championships in February, missed out on a place in the individual competition at the London Olympics but finished fifth in the synchro.

Along with the rest of the British squad, the British number one will now shift her focus to July's World Championships in Barcelona.
