Friday, 18th Apr 2014 2014-04-18 Britain’s French secures career best World Cup finish

Britain’s Kate French achieved the highest Modern Pentathlon World Cup finish of her career to date when she came sixth in China today (Friday).
 
The 23-year-old, ranked 18th in the world, crossed the finish line just six seconds off the bronze medal position at the competition in Chengdu.
 
Team-mate Samantha Murray finished 29th with Freyja Prentice not taking part in the fun/shoot due to an ankle injury. She had been 13th after the ride.
 
Today’s performance was the latest in a string of impressive performances from French, originally from Kent but now training at Pentathlon GB’s National Training Centre at the University of Bath.
 
She came 10th in the individual competitions at both World and European Championships last year and was runner-up at last month’s Swiss International in Bern and at this month’s International Budapest Cup.
 
French and Prentice won 19 bouts fencing bouts apiece today to share 12th place with 214 pentathlon points, while Murray won 17 of her 35 fencing contests putting her in 16th place with 202 points.
 
Murray clocked the quickest swim time of the day with a 200m freestyle time of 2:11.00 to add 308 points to her total, promoting her to eighth. French’s 2:21.11 was the 19th fastest of the day, putting her 13th going into the ride, while Prentice’s 2:26.25 saw her drop to 21st.
 
Murray went clear in the ride, but sustained eight time penalties to give her 292 points, putting her fifth going into the run/shoot. She started the run/shoot 27 seconds behind Russia’s event leader Alise Fakhrutdinova.
 
French dropped 12 points from the maximum riding score to go into the run/shoot in 10th, 50 seconds behind the leader, while Prentice’s riding performance – dropping just eight points – pushed her back up the leaderboard into 13th.
 
Prentice, who had been troubled by an ankle injury in Wednesday’s qualifiers, decided against tackling the run/shoot.
 
And while Murray’s Chendgu campaign faltered and she dropped down the field, French went on to achieve her highest World Cup finish yet. Her run/shoot time of 13:19.21 was the sixth best of the day. She crossed the finish line six seconds behind bronze medallist Wanxia Liang, a second behind Hungary’s Sarolta Kovacs and alongside Mina Jeong of South Korea, who just edged fifth.

Qian Chen, China's world number three, won gold with Poland's Oktawia Nowacka taking silver.

Thursday, 17th Apr 2014 2014-04-17 GB men miss out on final berths at Chengdu World Cup

The young British men’s team have missed out on places in Saturday’s final at the Modern Pentathlon World Cup in China. 

Twenty-year-old Sam Curry came agonisingly close to clinching a place in the final at only his fourth World Cup competition.
 
The top-12 athletes from each of the two semis automatically progress along with the next 12 highest points scores from the two semis.
 
Curry finished 18th in semi-final A and his points total of 1080 was the joint 12th highest among the athletes who didn’t automatically qualify, along with Lukas Kontrimavicius of Lithuania. But the Lithuanian’s better run/shoot time in semi-final B saw him secure the last spot in the men’s final on Saturday.
 
Curry was sixth after the fencing in semi-final A and climbed to ninth with a 200m freestyle swim time of 2:05.82. He dropped to 18th in the run/shoot.
 
Twenty-year-old Luke Tasker, competing at his first World Cup, finished 31st in the same semi. He was joint 19th after the fencing, produced the sixth fastest swim of the semi (2:02.92) to go into the run/shoot in 13th, but he dropped down the field.
 
Semi-final B started in the pool and Tom Toolis’ swim time of 2:04.56 put him eighth. He dropped down to 21st after the fencing and ended the day in the same spot.
 
Tomorrow (Friday) sees the women return to action in their final.

Wednesday, 16th Apr 2014 2014-04-16 GB trio through to Chengdu World Cup final

All three British women competing at the Modern Pentathlon World Cup in China have progressed through to Friday’s final.
 
Kate French, Freyja Prentice and Samantha Murray all qualified from their semis in Chengdu today (Wednesday).
 
Prentice struggled with an ankle injury and a decision on her participation in the final will be taken on the day.
 
Istvan Nemeth, Women’s Head Coach for the British team, said: “The only goal in the semi-finals is to get into the final. They’ve achieved that today."
 
French, ranked 19th in the world, qualified comfortably from semi-final A, crossing the finishing line in third place, 11 seconds behind China’s Xiaonon Zhang and a second behind Russia’s Ekaterina Khuraskina.
 
Sixth after the fencing and fifth after the swim, she was able to make sure of a top-12 place that guaranteed a spot in Friday’s final.
 
Prentice finished 17th in semi A after an ankle injury hampered her efforts during the run/shoot. With the top-12 from each semi guaranteed places in the final along with the next 12 highest points scorers, she faced a wait to see if she had reached the final. Her points score was high enough to see her through.
 
Samantha Murray came home 14th in semi B. Eleventh after the fencing, she clocked the second fastest 200m swim of the semi with 2:11.26 to go into the run/shoot in fifth. She crossed the finish line in a bunch of athletes to safely qualify for Friday's final.
 
Russia’s Donata Rimsaite led the way home in semi-final B.
 
Tomorrow (Thursday), 20-year-old Luke Tasker makes his World Cup debut in the men’s heats. He goes in semi-final A. Sam Curry and Tom Toolis go in semi-final B.

Monday, 14th Apr 2014 2014-04-14 Tasker set for World Cup debut in China

Twenty-year-old Luke Tasker is set to make his Modern Pentathlon World Cup debut at this week’s competition in Chengdu, China.
 
Tasker is a member of a six-strong GB team competing at the event. He joins 20-year-old Sam Curry, who contests his fourth World Cup, and 21-year-old Tom Toolis, who competes at only his second World Cup, in a young GB men’s team.
 
London 2012 Olympic silver medallist Samantha Murray heads the GB women’s team. She is joined by Freyja Prentice and Kate French, who are ranked 17th and 19th in the world respectively.
 
Jan Bartu, Pentathlon GB Performance Director, said: “Chengdu will be another opportunity for selected athletes to score points for the pentathlon world ranking list and hopefully achieve positive results for the British rankings, which will be used to select the teams for the European and World Championships later in the season.”
 
Tasker, who is studying Sports Performance at the University of Bath, finished 27th at the International Budapest Cup in Hungary a week ago, where Curry was 22nd and Toolis 23rd.
 
French continued her strong performances over the last year by taking the silver medal in the women’s competition at the International Budapest Cup, finishing 26 seconds behind Hungary’s Sarolta Kovacs.
 
Samantha Murray came home sixth with Jo Muir seventh, Georgia Pipes 20th and Caroline Nickerson 25th.
