Santander Sporting Scholar Emma Whitaker (Sports Performance) returns to the venue where she won bronze on her World Cup debut 12 months ago as part of a GB women’s squad also featuring Alex Bousfield (Politics and International Relations) and alumnae Olivia Green and Jess Varley.

All of the athletes train at the Team Bath Sports Training Village, home to Pentathlon GB’s National Training Centre for the past 25 years.
