British modern pentathletes win European team gold

  • Britain’s modern pentathlon team continued their victory streak by winning gold at last weekend’s European Championships in Leipzig, Germany.

    Olympic silver medallist Heather Fell individual European silver to her collection, helping to nudge her team — Katy Livingston and Mhairi Spence — into first place.

    Heather, 26, was the only rider to go clear in the show jumping, but pipped to individual gold by world champion Amelie Caze of France, by just nine seconds.

    “I had my best swim of the year, a good ride and the combined event was probably my best one,” said Heather.

    Heather and Team GB now have their sights set firmly on the World Championships at Crystal Palace from 13-17 August.
