Champion of Champions debuts await modern pentathletes as Rio Olympic season concludes

01 November 2016

Rio Olympians Jamie Cooke and Samantha Murray will conclude their 2016 modern pentathlon seasons at the Champion of Champions event in Doha this month.

The Qatar-based event is now widely regarded as the season finale and the British duo will get their last taste of competitive action for this year before their winter training continues at the University of Bath, Pentathlon GB’s National Training Centre.

Cooke and Murray teamed up at the Kremlin Cup in Moscow last month, finishing fifth in a mixed-relay format event on their first return to action after the Olympics.

“We love pentathlon, it’s our passion, and it’s an honour to compete for our country,” said former World Champion Murray, a French and Politics graduate from the University of Bath.

Cooke added: “The Olympics was obviously the big focus for us this year but it’s also nice to come to competitions such as the Kremlin Cup and have a little bit of fun, as well as compete with your friends.”

Murray will compete on Saturday, November 12, with Cooke – currently ranked number two in the world – in action the following day.
