Bronze for Toby at the Edinburgh World Cup

A memorable weekend at the Edinburgh World Cup saw Toby win the bronze medal at only his second ever World Cup.

In doing so, Toby claimed Great Britain’s first lead World Cup medal since Ian Vickers at the Moscow World Cup in 1994, and also become only Great Britain’s 5th ever Lead World Cup medal winner alongside Jerry Moffatt, Ben Moon, Madonna di Campiglioni and Ian Vickers.

“I still can’t believe the result in Edinburgh – it was incredible to stand on the podium with Jesse Grupper and Luka Potocar. I normally watch World Cup finals on TV, so to be part of one and stand on the podium felt very surreal.

It felt amazing to win my first World Cup medal at home in front of a crowd who were cheering so loudly and offering so much support. After a lot of travel with Munich and then Dallas it was nice to have a home World Cup and massive thanks to everyone involved in organising it. I’m now very psyched for my next comps – I’m hoping to compete in a Combined event to end my international season before starting to train for next year.”
