Silver start to Junior European Championships for Pentathlon GB athletes

27 May 2015

University of Bath student Joanna Muir helped Pentathlon GB make a medal-winning start to the Junior European Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Muir, who has just completed a Sports Performance degree, teamed up with Francesca Summers to secure a silver medal in the women’s relay competition on Tuesday, finishing behind Hungarian duo Rebeka Ormandi and Karolina Palkovics.

The British men’s team of Thomas Lees and Luke Tasker, the latter also a Sports Performance student, narrowly missed out on a medal in their relay as they finished fourth.

The championships continue until Sunday.

Pentathlon GB are based at the University of Bath, which will host the senior European Championships from August 18-23.

Tickets are available for the event, which is a qualifying competition for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Click here for more information.
