Gold for Green as University of Bath student Olivia leads British one-two at Czech Open Modern Pentathlon Champs

13 May 2019

Team Bath Dual Career athlete Olivia Green won gold and Kerenza Bryson took silver as rising Pentathlon GB stars produced excellent results at the Czech Open Championships.

Both Sport & Exercise Science student Green, fresh from making her World Cup debut in Hungary, and Bryson were in the leading pack throughout the day and went into the decisive run-shoot sitting second and third respectively before improving their positions in fine style.

Fellow Brit Holly Parker, who was only called up to the squad two days before competition, started and finished the run-shoot in fourth and Georgina Mitchell, making her full modern pentathlon international debut, placed an impressive seventh overall.

Santander Sporting Scholar Georgia Hannam, who studies Physical Activity & Health at the University of Bath, was unfortunate not to join her team-mates in the top ten after a fall in the ride meant she had to settle for 18th overall.

The men’s competition saw Sports Performance student Bradley Sutton, who is also supported by a Santander scholarship, record a top-ten finish as he led the British team home with Oliver Murray 14th, 17-year-old George Case 15th and international debutant Jack White 30th.

Many young modern pentathletes training at Pentathlon GB’s National Centre at the University of Bath take the opportunity to combine study and sport. Find out more about the Team Bath Dual Career programme and scholarship opportunities by clicking here.
