Pentathlon GB athletes recorded three top-ten finishes when they competed in Los Angeles at the second Modern Pentathlon World Cup of the 2018 season.

Former World Champion Samantha Murray (pictured) achieved her highest international placing since 2015 when she finished a fine fifth in the women’s competition, with team-mate Francesca Summers placing 18th overall.

Rio 2016 Olympian Jamie Cooke was seventh in the men’s competition, his fourth top-ten finish in as many visits to the United States. University of Bath Mathematics student Joe Choong, a MJ Church Ambassador, was 30th and Sport & Exercise Science graduate Tom Toolis was 33rd.
