Tonia CouchTONIA Couch, Tom Daley and Dan Goodfellow will begin their FINA World Series campaign on Friday in Beijing.

Plymouth Diving’s Couch will line up in the women’s platform synchro event with Leeds teenager Lois Toulson.

Couch and her Plymouth Diving team-mate Sarah Barrow won a World Cup bronze medal last month and secured Great Britain a spot at the Olympics. However, British officials have paired Couch with Toulson again for the start of the World Series.

Daley and Goodfellow will also dive on Friday in the synchro event after making their international debut together at the World Cup in Brazil, where they won bronze.

Daley and Couch will then compete in the individual platform events on Sunday. The duo made their Olympic debuts in the same pool back in 2008.

Couch became World Series champion last year, collecting medals at four of the six rounds.
