Two top 10 placings for GB's Pentathlon duo
Britain’s modern pentathletes have soared up the world rankings following impressive performances at the World Cup Final and Olympic test event in London at the weekend.
Britain now has two women in the world’s top five. Heather Fell has climbed from seventh to fourth following her seventh place in London on Sunday while Mhairi Spence climbs from ninth to fifth after finishing fifth at Greenwich Park.
Freyja Prentice, who produced an outstanding run/shoot to climb from 24th to 12th at the World Cup Final, is now 11th in the senior rankings and continues to top the junior world rankings.
Katy Burke is 25th in the senior rankings and Samantha Murray 28th. Neither Burke nor Murray competed at the World Cup Final as each country could only field a maximum of three athletes per gender.
Germany Beijing 2008 Olympic champion Lena Schoneborn returns to the top of the women’s rankings after taking gold in London at weekend.
Britain’s pentathletes will return to action later this month at the European Championships, which take place at Medway in Kent from 28 July to 1 August.
The British team trains at the Pentathlon GB High Performance Centre at the University of Bath.
The world rankings are based on the performances over the last 12 months and will change again shortly when results from last year’s European Championships will no longer count towards the rankings.
