Teenager Lois Toulson was the surprise package of last month's British Gas Diving Championships in Plymouth, beating European champion Sarah Barrow and double Olympian Tonia Couch to take her first national gold in the women's 10m Platform.
And the 15-year old did it in style, beating her previous national five-dive PB by more than 50 points to take gold on 366.85 and receiving a 10 from one judge for her final dive.
The City of Leeds diver enjoyed a promising 2014 season, winning European Junior gold and World Junior silver, but few - not even her coach - expected her to break through the way she did in Plymouth.
Now back in hard training, we caught up with Lois and asked her thoughts on the upcoming season...
Hi Lois - well done for your gold! Has the feeling sunk in yet?
Thanks! Yeah, just about now.
What were your expectations for the competition?
I wanted to make the final, do my dives well and get a PB. And I got a massive PB in the end so that was really good.
And to score a ten in the final must have capped it off?
Yeah, I scored a ten from one judge for my last dive. I've never got one before so for it come at a national competition made it even better.
Was there much pressure on that last dive?
Yeah, a bit. But my last dive is my favourite dive and I always save it until the end. I quite enjoy doing it last because I know it's quite a reliable dive.
How did you celebrate winning gold?
I went to Wagamama with my mum and some of my teammates!
How many dives on your list were new this season?
Three out of the five were quite new but I've been working on them for a good few months now. They were the first three on my list so inward 2 ½ pike, reverse 2 ½ tuck and back 2 ½ pike.
Do you feel like you can improve your score this season?
Yes - I can definitely improve. We're going to work on some bigger dives now so it'll be easier to get higher scores because they will have higher tariffs.
What did your coach say afterwards?
He was really pleased. He had a target score for me and I got higher than that as well. I think my goals for the year are still pretty much the same but I might do a few more senior competitions as well as junior ones.
When and how often do you train?
I train every day apart from Monday. During the week, I do three hours every day then on Saturdays I do four and on Sundays I do two. The weekday ones are after school and I have to leave school 15 minutes early to get to training on time.
Why did you become a diver?
I think I saw it on TV when I was about seven. My dad took me to a lesson and I really enjoyed it so I carried on from there.
What hobbies do you have away from diving?
Ha, I don't really have much time for many other things! I quite like baking though.
What year are you in at school?
I'm in year 10 at the moment so I'm doing GCSE mocks this year. My favourite subject is probably PE! But after that, science.
What music do you like?
I'll listen to anything really but mostly chart music.
Do you have any pets?
Yes! I have a dog called Joe.
Do you have sporty siblings?
I've got an older sister who is 18 but we're completely different! She hates heights and everything about diving!
What advice do you have for aspiring divers?
I think I'd say just keep going as long as you're enjoying it. If you're not enjoying it, there's no point because you're doing sport for fun in the end.
