Lois Toulson continued her impressive progress to win her first senior international gold with victory at the Singapore leg of the FINA Diving Grand Prix.
The 16-year old, who sprung a surprise to capture the British senior title earlier this season, scored 345.25 to beat Chinese pair Wang Han (342.70) and Wang Ying (302.60) in the final in Singapore.
Toulson’s victory saw her become the first British gold medallist at FINA Grand Prix level since Olympic bronze medallist Tom Daley won the same event at the Fort Lauderdale leg six years ago.
It has been a remarkable season for the City of Leeds diver, who also claimed the inaugural European Games title this year and was named Diving Emerging Athlete of the Year at the British Swimming Awards.
Toulson’s friend and training partner Katherine Torrance also made an individual final in Singapore, finishing fifth in the 3m Springboard.
The European Games champion improved on her semi-final tally to score 284.40 in the final with Australia’s Naomi Gowlett claiming bronze on 296.35 behind China’s Wu Chun Ting (339.75) and Ukraine’s Anastasiia Nedobiga (316.85).
