Sporting scholars among eight University of Bath-based athletes selected for U24 Modern Pentathlon European Championships
Oliver Murray, one of the 15 new University of Bath sporting scholars for 2019-20, is among eight athletes selected by Pentathlon GB for this week’s U24 European Championships in Drzonkow, Poland.
All of the squad are based at Pentathlon GB’s National Training Centre at the University, with Murray – who studies Electronic & Electrical Engineering – joined in the men’s team by fellow Santander scholar Bradley Sutton, Henry Choong and Sports Performance graduate Jamie Harper.
The women’s team features Santander scholar Georgia Hannam, Dual Career athlete Olivia Green and Charlie Follett – they study Physical Activity & Health, Sport & Exercise Science and Psychology respectively. Also selected is Emma Whitaker, who has recently moved to the national centre as a TASS athlete.
Murray and Follett both competed at the Senior European Championships at the University of Bath Sports Training Village, with the former winning a brilliant gold in the men’s relay with Trendell Sporting Scholar Myles Pillage. Follett was fourth in the women’s relay with Zoe Davison.
The U24 European Championships will see the women’s final take place on Friday (November 22), followed by the men’s final on Saturday and a mixed relay on Sunday.
