Double delight for Samantha Murray and Jamie Cooke as University of Bath hosts second Pentathlon GB ranking comp
Olympians Samantha Murray and Jamie Cooke made it two wins from two when the University of Bath Sports Training Village hosted the second Pentathlon GB National Ranking Competition of 2018 over the weekend.
London 2012 silver-medallist and former World Champion Murray led the women’s competition from start to finish, taking top spot ahead of up-and-coming young athletes Kerenza Bryson and Zoe Davison.
Cooke had dominated the first men’s National Ranking Competition last month but was made to work for his latest success, eventually taking the lead in the laser run-shoot as he finished ahead of University of Bath Biochemistry student Myles Pillage, a Trendell Sporting Scholar, and Sport & Exercise Science graduate Tom Toolis.
