11 August 2021

Newly-crowned modern pentathlon Olympic Champions Joe Choong and Kate French returned to their University of Bath training base today (Wednesday) following their heroics at Tokyo 2020

Sports Performance graduate French became the first British female pentathlete for 21 years to win gold when she won the title with an Olympic Record points total on Friday.

Choong, who studied Mathematics at the University, then made his own bit of history 24 hours later as he became the first British male pentathlete to win an individual Olympic medal – and it was gold too after a dominant performance.

We caught up with the champions at the Team Bath Sports Training Village, home to Pentathlon GB‘s National Performance Centre, to find out more about their success and how they think it will boost their sport.
