A 51 year old first-timer has made a big splash in Christchurch, earning her a place at the Manu World Champs in Auckland next month.

Tania Veronese-Cowell flung herself off a three metre diving board during the regional heats at Jellie Park over the weekend.

She'd last been on a diving board four decades ago.
