Peter Duckworth - Obituary

Posted on Thursday, 3rd Jan 2013 by John Woodbridge

 Peter Duckworth

Peter Duckworth, who died on 26 December 2012, was the most influential member of the MPAGB during the 1950s and 1960s. His contribution to Modern Pentathlon was formidable.

He was fourth man in the Great Britain team at the 1948 London Olympics, became British Champion the following year and placed 9th in the first World Championships in Stockholm that year. His sporting career was cut short by a serious shrapnel wound when fighting in the Korean War in 1951. He went on to become the central figure in the MPAGB, managing our National teams at the 1959 World Championships and the 1960 Rome Olympic Games. His energy and resourcefulness were key factors in driving the sport forward in Great Britain. He believed everyone should be involved in strategies for raising money and for more effective training. Most of all, he always took time to write to young pentathletes coming into the sport with words of encouragement. Many pentathletes at all levels had cause to remember this infectious encouragement with affection and respect. The fact that there are a number of such letters still stored away today is testimony to how importantly his encouragement was regarded. In one such letter to a young naval officer, Michael Egan, Duckworth touched on one of the great advantages of the sport. He wrote:

‘To my mind the great thing about this game is that you and I can indulge our taste for competition in five events in which, outside the framework of the Modern Pentathlon, we couldn’t begin to or would not dare to. Because of this we can find umpteen other sportsmen of similar mind with whom, regardless of our standard in this event or that, we can do battle.’

Though immobilised and ultimately bed-ridden after a stroke robbed him of his daily fitness regime, Peter Duckworth, cared for constantly by his devoted wife, Ann, remained full of lively conversation about Modern Pentathlon. He will be fondly remembered and sorely missed.

A memorial service for Peter will be held on 6th March 2013 at the All Saints Church, Church Road, Fleet, GU51 4NB. The service will start at 12.00pm.

Anyone wishing to come along and pay their respects will be welcome to attend.

Wednesday, 21st Jan 2015 2015-01-21 French tops table for second time whilst Cooke takes men's honours  Kate French in action at Millfield

Kate French, 2014 World Championships Mixed Relay silver medallist, topped the table once more at the second of three Pentathlon GB national ranking events which took place at Millfield School over the weekend.

In a tight contest she took the honours by ten points from Freyja Prentice with World Champion and Olympic silver medallist Samantha Murray, from Clitheroe, Lancs, in third. 

Mhairi Spence, the 2011 World Champion, made her return to competitive action after a post season break and produced a top ten finish.  

Eilidh Prise, from Aberdeen, was the surprise package of the competition. The 19 year old who has already won medals at Youth International level, was fourth just 16 points behind Murray.

French, from Meopham, nr Gravesend, Kent, said:  “It’s a good start to the year so I’m really pleased. There’s still room for improvement and I know what I’ve got to work on for next time.  I really liked the ride, I had a lovely horse which made it enjoyable.  I’m looking forward to the season and I’m focused on selection for the World Cups and qualifying for the World Cup Final”.

The men’s event also produced a close finish with only four points separating the winner Jamie Cooke from Joe Evans and Joseph Choong in second and third respectively.

Cooke’s victory reversed the outcome of the equivalent December event in which Shropshire’s Evans came out on top.

Cheltenham’s Cooke, a former World Junior Champion, said:  “It was really nice to win today. We’ve just got two weeks of training under the belt after the Christmas break and they’re always quite hard and then to come out and perform it’s been really good.  

“We’re quite a tight group at the moment, we’re always pushing each other on and I think that was shown today by the first five or six athletes finishing so close together.  Obviously that’s really good for the programme because we’re all pushing each other.  

Looking forward this is a big season with Olympic qualifiers – like the European Championships in Bath this summer coming up – but I just want to get the World Cups under my belt and see how they go, I’m really pleased with how things have been going training wise so it will be good to see how I get on at the internationals”.

About the format of the competition Jan Bartu said “This is the first time ever that we’ve simultaneously run the Youth A and the Junior/Senior ranking competitions over in one day – the competition started at 0800 and by 1800 everything was packed and we were on our way back home.  Thanks to all involved and especially those who voluntarily gave us a hand on the day.” 

The third and final ranking event will be at Millfield School once more on February 7.

Wednesday, 31st Dec 2014 2014-12-31 Obituary - Pat Arrand

It is with great sadness that we have to report the sudden passing of one of our very active volunteers, Pat Arrand, just before Christmas. Pat had been on the committee of Yorkshire Pentathlon Club since its formation in 2003 and had only just last month decided to retire from the committee.

Pat had officiated at National and International Pentathlon competitions on both the ride and the shoot/run, culminating with being a Technical Official at the London 2012 Olympics.

Pat was also the present District Commissioner of the Hurworth Hunt Branch of the Pony Club and worked tirelessly with all disciplines of the Club but with a particular interest in Tetrathlon and the link with Pentathlon. Our thoughts must go to Pat’s husband Charles and all her family.

The funeral will be held at 12:00 on 7th January at St Felix Church, Felixkirk, Thirsk, North Yorkshire.

Thursday, 18th Dec 2014 2014-12-18 Contenders for European Crowns will contest a new Bonus Round in fencing

Contenders for the crown of European Champion in 2015 will take part in an exciting “Bonus Round” in the fencing competition. This new format was adopted by the sport’s international federation just over two weeks ago and looks set to prove a hit with spectators and TV alike.

As reported by the Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne (UIPM) website, Modern Pentathlon continues to evolve with the establishment of this new and exciting fencing format which won the approval of a huge majority of delegates at the Congress in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The Bonus Round will take place at the end of the traditional Round Robin stage. Finalists will fence in a one-to-one format on a single piste, creating a more exciting finale.  All athletes will have the chance to add bonus points to top up their score.

The format was vigorously tested this year at numerous events, including the prestigious World Cup Final in Sarasota, USA and the World Championships in Warsaw, Poland.

Fencing is one of the five disciplines that make up Modern Pentathlon, one of the most challenging of Olympic sports.  The others are swimming, Riding, running and shooting.

Modern Pentathlon has deep and traditional Olympic roots but is also known for its unique mixture of heritage and modernity.  Athletes already use laser pistols in the combined event, the run and shoot format which was adopted for the London Games of 2012.

The 2015 European Championships will be hosted 17 – 23 August at the University of Bath, England, by PentathlonGB.

For further information please contact the Pentathlon GB press office at Matchtight Ltd on 01225 384211 or at press@matchtight.co.uk

Tuesday, 16th Dec 2014 2014-12-16 Evans and French top British ranking points list

Joe Evans and Kate French topped the men’s and women’s points list at the end of the weekend’s first of three Pentathlon GB ranking competitions for the 2015 season.

French recovered from what she describes as a “disappointing swim” to move into top position after the fencing competition in the women’s competition.  She followed that with a strong riding performance and entered the final discipline, the combined run-shoot, with a good lead.

“Riding is definitely one of my strengths; it can be a bit up and down though as you never know in our sport which horse you will get to ride.  Fortunately on Saturday I got a nice horse and we did OK”, explained Kent’s French, who was asilver medallist with Shropshire’s Evans in the mixed relay at the World Championships in September of this year.

French came home 36 points ahead overall from Francesca Summers in second with Joanna Muir in third, fourteen points adrift of Summers.

2014 World Champion Samantha Murray was leading after the swim but finished fifth after a difficult ride. Freya Prentice, silver medallist with French in the women’s relay at the World Championships this year, was fourth.

“It was a good experience for me as I’ve never been out front before the combined event which means that you shoot on your own.  Normally there are others around you at that point.  I think I handled the pressure OK. I didn’t shoot badly”.

The ability to experience the pressure of competition during the long winter of training was a key component of the weekend’s event for Performance Director Jan Bartu.

Evans, still only 22, led throughout the men’s competition and comfortably finished in first position after the combined event.

His nearest rival and former World Junior Champion Jamie Cooke from Cheltenham was by far the fastest in the run-shoot moving him up from 11th place after the ride to second overall.

Joe Choong, from Orpington, was third and Tom Toolis came home fourth.  Choong ‘s brother Henry was seventh with Nick Woodbridge sixth and Sam Curry fifth.

“This was a test of endurance with longer swim and running distances than normal”, said Istvan Nemeth, PentathlonGB Women’s Team Head coach.  “In that sense it was a good event and we can see that the winter training is on track”.

Friday, 12th Dec 2014 2014-12-12 Bath set to host most compact Europeans of all time  Modern Pentathlon European Championships 2015 Logo

Next year Europe’s best Modern Pentathletes will enjoy a European Championships in the most compact setting ever, according to Pentathlon GB who today launched the event’s official website.

“In my memory there has never been a more compact venue than the one we are offering in Bath in August of next year”, said former Olympic medallist and current Olympic Team Leader, Dominic Mahony.

The University of Bath, which is home to Pentathlon GB’s National Training Centre, will play host to the Championships from 17-23 August 2015.  With fantastic facilities on offer, the athletes will swim, fence, ride, run and shoot all within 400m of each other in spectator-friendly arenas.  As an added advantage athlete accommodation is on site as well as the stabling for the horses.

Eight Olympic quota places are on offer for men and women at the event, making it one of the most significant competitions for athletes on the Road to Rio.  The event is part of UK Sport’s National Lottery Funded £27 million Gold Event Series and one of 14 major events in 2015.

Samantha Murray, London 2012 Olympic silver medallist, said she was excited by the prospect of competing in an Olympic qualifier at her home training base.

“It will be a fantastic opportunity for our sport to harness the interest generated by the 2012 Olympics and by the performance of the British men and women there.”

“From my experience in London I know it will be a fabulous occasion for British athletes to compete on home soil in front of friends, families and supporters, and that’s always an advantage,” she added.

Spectators, athletes and officials alike, can visit the new website from today and can register to receive more information: www.pentathlongb.org/europeanchamps

More than 100 pentathletes, including Olympic and World medallists, from around Europe are expected to compete.  Kara Luck, Event Director, said:  

“We are looking forward to welcoming the athletes and their support teams as well as spectators to the UK for the event.  Bath is a World Heritage site and we have a history of success in this fascinating Olympic sport. So there will also be plenty of excitement for the home crowd.”

Modern Pentathlon is one of the most demanding Olympic sports and sees athletes tackle swimming, fencing, riding and a combined run and shoot all in one day.  

Meanwhile, GB’s top athletes will be in action tomorrow at Millfield School in the first of three ranking competitions which will give the athletes a chance to impress the coaches who will use the results to decide on their major event line-ups in 2015.

Wednesday, 10th Dec 2014 2014-12-10 Bartu says Saturday marks opening of Olympic qualifying season

The nation's top modern pentathletes will be put through their paces under pressure this weekend as the sport holds its first of three planned ranking events.

Performance Director Jan Bartu says Saturday’s event, to be held at Millfield School, Somerset, marks the beginning of the Olympic qualifying season.

“Obviously it’s an opportunity for a bit of competition in the middle of the winter training but it’s also a chance for the athletes to feel the pressure and to deal with it”, said Bartu.

“The sport has three Olympic qualifying opportunities next year and these ranking events will help indicate how we might maximise the athletes participating at those events”, he added.

Saturday’s event is designed to test endurance with the swim and run taking place over double the normal Olympic distance.

Athletes seeking to impress will have two further chances on January 17 and February 7.

Olympic silver medallist Sam Murray will be on the starting line on Saturday.  She, with others, will be hoping for selection to the world cups but also the events which count for Olympic qualification places for GB. These are the World Championships (late June) and the World Cup final (also June) but culminating in the most significant opportunity for GB athletes when eight places are available at the home European Championships, also being staged in Bath in August.

Wednesday, 26th Nov 2014 2014-11-26 Pentathlon GB Announce Academies Programme

Modern Pentathlon, one of the nation’s most successful Olympic sports, has today announced a series of Academies across the country to nurture the stars of the future.

The Pentathlon GB Academies will build on already-established initiatives in schools and clubs. 

Jan Bartu, the Performance Director who has overseen GB’s medal success at every Games since Sydney 2000 said:  “The Academies signal our resolve to build a strong and dynamic future for our sport and to create a pipeline of talent at all levels”.

Today’s announcement is the culmination of three years of planning for the Pentathlon GB.  The first academies to be given accreditation are based in Millfield School, Wellington College, Plymouth College, Whitgift School, Rossall School and Bishop Burton College.

Apprentice coaches from Pentathlon GB’s Coach Apprentice Programme will work at some of the new Academies and it is hoped that further Academies will be added to these seven in the future. 

“We are building a solid base for Modern Pentathlon around the country with resident qualified coaches in situ”, added Bartu of the sport which includes fencing, swimming, riding, running and shooting and is considered one of the toughest of all the Olympic sports to master. 

Pentathlon GB continue to seek additional Academy sites.  Venues seeking to apply will need to offer onsite training for four of the five disciplines on site and be able to fund a coach within twelve months of start-up.

“What the Academies will help us do is set a high bar for Modern Pentathlon in the regions and those who aspire to develop to both compete and coach at the top end of our game will have the infrastructure and excellence to support and nurture them”, said Bartu.

The newly announced Academies join one already established at Hartpury College and form part of the network which includes the high performance centre at the University of Bath.

 

2015 marks the beginning of the Olympic qualification period and GB athletes will have a great chance to make an early impact as Pentathlon GB are hosting the European Championships in the UK in August.

Wednesday, 5th Nov 2014 2014-11-05 Have your say on UK Sport strategy

UK Sport has launched a public consultation as part of a strategic review into the way National Lottery and Government funds are invested in high performance sport beyond Rio 2016.

Since its inception in 1997, UK Sport has helped Great Britain move up from 36th on the Olympic medal table at the Atlanta Games in 1996 to third in both the Olympic and Paralympic medal table at London 2012, amassing a record breaking 185 medals across 30 Olympic and Paralympic sports and in turn creating 213 Olympic and Paralympic medal winning athletes to inspire the nation.

It has played a major role in supporting Pentathlon GB’s performance programme and in ensuring the programme has built an impressive track record of success that has included five Olympic medallists from the last four Olympic Games and two world champions in the last three years, as well as a host of other medals at major international events.

Anyone can participate in the public consultation by completing a form that is downloadable from the UK Sport website. If you wish to comment on UK Sport’s future strategy, please go to http://www.uksport.gov.uk/consultation. The consultation closes on 10th December.

"We welcome UK Sport’s consultation on its strategic direction beyond Rio 2016 and look forward to contributing our views.

We recognise that funding from UK Sport has made an invaluable contribution to the success of Pentathlon GB and its athletes at all levels, including five British modern pentathlon medallists in the last four Olympic Games and two individual World Champions in the last three years. We look forward to continuing to work closely with UK Sport and to building on this success and would encourage all our supporters to register their views", said Anthony Temple, Chair of Pentathlon GB.

Saturday, 1st Nov 2014 2014-11-01 Youth Programme Hungarian Training Camp

9 members of the PGB Pathway Programme return today from a 7 day intensive training camp in Szekesfehevar and Budapest today. The camp included taking part in the Hungarian Junior Championships at which there was 57 male and 36 female athletes competing, for the GB athletes it was a built in as part of the training camp programme and they did not ride. So in the Tetrathlon phase we did very well against much more experienced and older athletes, full results are available on the Hungarian Pentathlon website. For the remainder of the camp we shot and swam each morning then fenced all afternoon/early evening with the visiting 12 strong German team, athletes from Budapest and surrounding clubs. No fencing session had less than 30 athletes and on the final night it was 50+ so extremely valubale experience for us. With Istvan Gallai (Csiga) now the Hungarian Development Manager it paved the way for all local logistics to be perfectly executed for us - thanks Csiga.

Coach for the camp was the PGB National Fencing Coach (Frici) and he commented at the final debrief session that "it was a very good camp and all GB athletes were attentive, keen and engaging - well done"

Both the German and Hungarian Youth Teams have expressed positive interest in competing at the GB Youth International in 2015 so no doubt friendships made this week will be renewed between the athletes.

Bath set to host most compact Europeans of all time

Posted on Friday, 12th Dec 2014 by Caroline Searle

 Modern Pentathlon European Championships 2015 Logo

Next year Europe’s best Modern Pentathletes will enjoy a European Championships in the most compact setting ever, according to Pentathlon GB who today launched the event’s official website.

“In my memory there has never been a more compact venue than the one we are offering in Bath in August of next year”, said former Olympic medallist and current Olympic Team Leader, Dominic Mahony.

The University of Bath, which is home to Pentathlon GB’s National Training Centre, will play host to the Championships from 17-23 August 2015.  With fantastic facilities on offer, the athletes will swim, fence, ride, run and shoot all within 400m of each other in spectator-friendly arenas.  As an added advantage athlete accommodation is on site as well as the stabling for the horses.

Eight Olympic quota places are on offer for men and women at the event, making it one of the most significant competitions for athletes on the Road to Rio.  The event is part of UK Sport’s National Lottery Funded £27 million Gold Event Series and one of 14 major events in 2015.

Samantha Murray, London 2012 Olympic silver medallist, said she was excited by the prospect of competing in an Olympic qualifier at her home training base.

“It will be a fantastic opportunity for our sport to harness the interest generated by the 2012 Olympics and by the performance of the British men and women there.”

“From my experience in London I know it will be a fabulous occasion for British athletes to compete on home soil in front of friends, families and supporters, and that’s always an advantage,” she added.

Spectators, athletes and officials alike, can visit the new website from today and can register to receive more information: www.pentathlongb.org/europeanchamps

More than 100 pentathletes, including Olympic and World medallists, from around Europe are expected to compete.  Kara Luck, Event Director, said:  

“We are looking forward to welcoming the athletes and their support teams as well as spectators to the UK for the event.  Bath is a World Heritage site and we have a history of success in this fascinating Olympic sport. So there will also be plenty of excitement for the home crowd.”

Modern Pentathlon is one of the most demanding Olympic sports and sees athletes tackle swimming, fencing, riding and a combined run and shoot all in one day.  

Meanwhile, GB’s top athletes will be in action tomorrow at Millfield School in the first of three ranking competitions which will give the athletes a chance to impress the coaches who will use the results to decide on their major event line-ups in 2015.
