Toolis competes for GB on world stage

Former Coopers pupil Tom Toolis declared himself reasonably happy with his performances in the Modern Pentathlon World Cup series this season.

The 21-year-old from Hornchurch, now studying at Bath University, competed across the globe for Great Britain and is hoping the experience stands him in good stead in future.

He said; “I was pleased to have been chosen for three World Cups this year. I think World Cup 4 in Hungary was the most successful in terms of my personal goals.

“It was disappointing not to make any finals this year. But this is my first year as a senior and this World Cup series has opened my eyes to what i need to work on for future competitions.”

Toolis has now set his sights on earning selection for the European Championships in July and the World Championships in September, adding: “I will continue to train and will likely go to Font Romeu in France during August for altitude training, whether or not I’m chosen for the World Championships.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
