From Rio to Russia as pentathletes Murray and Cooke head to Kremlin Cup

30 September 2016

Rio 2016 Olympians Jamie Cooke and Samantha Murray will head to Moscow this weekend to represent Pentathlon GB in the Kremlin Cup.

The University of Bath-based athletes will both be making their debuts in the invitational event, which will see 12 nations competing in a mixed relay on Sunday.

Murray, who won Olympic silver at the London 2012 Games, was the highest-placed former medallist in Rio as she finished ninth overall after a strong second day of competition.

Cooke, who was 14th in the men’s competition on his Olympic debut, is looking to cap an impressive 2016 season that saw him become the first British man to win gold at the World Cup Final.

The University of Bath is proud to host Pentathlon GB’s National Performance Centre at the Sports Training Village.
