Pentathlon: Samantha Murray in pole position for World Champs final

August 23, 2013

Great Britain’s Samantha Murray is currently in pole position in the women’s final at the Modern Pentathlon World Championships in Chinese Taipei.

Murray won 21 of her 34 fencing bouts and posted the fastest 200m freestyle swimming time of 2:10.58 minutes for the lead with defending champion and fellow Brit Mhairi Spence tenth, Freyja Prentice 15th and Kate French 18th.

After hours of heavy rain today, the ride and combined run-shoot have been postponed due to the safety of the athletes and horses and will now be run on Saturday (24 August).

With Murray, Spence and French’s efforts counting towards the women’s team competition, Britain are in the lead in that too, infront of Ukraine and China.
