5 things we learned from Tonia Couch

We met up with British Olympic diver Tonia Couch for a photo shoot and a good old chinwag. You can see the full shoot and interview in this month's Forever Sports magazine, but in the mean time, here are five things we learned from our time with Tonia...

1 – She could have been a gymnast

but a fractured elbow when she was young forced her to perform in a cast, and eventually made her try diving. The rest is history.

2 – This might be her last Olympics

but shes not ready to admit it just yet. This is her third crack at an Olympic medal, and Couch is thinking of a new route post-Rio.

3 – She loves a Chinese

on her cheat day, but other than that, shes a bit of a health fiend.

4 – If she won the lottery, shed buy a massive house and fill it with dogs

because she just loves dogs. Obviously. She has a massive dog of her own called Nanook, who is a cross of four different breeds.

5 – Shes best mates with Tom Daley

and even stayed at his house the night before our shoot!
