Ten Brits to head to Modern Pentathlon European Championships

  • Ten British athletes will be heading to Hungary next month to take part in the 2010 Modern Pentathlon European Championships (14-20 July).

    Four senior athletes — Heather Fell, Mhairi Spence, Katy Livingston and Louise Helyer — have been selected to compete in the women’s individual competition.

    And juniors Samantha Murray, Katy Burke and Freyja Prentice will represent Great Britain in the team relay.

    All seven women are currently in the top-32 in the world rankings.

    Olympians Sam Weale and Nick Woodbridge will contest the men’s individual competition and will be joined for the team relay by 19-year-old Jamie Cooke.

    British athletes are currently doing well in the sport and last weekend Kate French finished second at the German Open Championships in Berlin, pushing her up to 55th in the world rankings.

    Jamie Cooke was the highest place British finisher in the men’s competition, coming seventh.
