World junior champion Jamie Cooke and Olympic silver medallist Heather Fell will both Miss London 2012 after Great Britain’s recent pentathlon team was confirmed. As estimated, world champion Mhairi Spence leads the women’s team and she’ll be joined by world bronze medallist Samantha Murray, whose breakthrough season and performance in Rome meant she trumped the claims of Fell, who completed third in the recent World Cup final in Chengdu.
“I find it hard to find words to explain how excited I am to be part of the British team,” said Spence.”I’ve dreamed of competing at an Olympics since I was eight years old and I feel like it’s so much more special because the Olympic Games will be in London.”We’re so lucky to be challenging at a home Olympics. It’s something that so many athletes will never get the chance to experience.”
Great Britain has medaled in every Olympic pentathlon competition since women were first allowed to compete in 2000 – where Steph Cook, the last British world champion in 2001, won gold and Kate Allenby took bronze. Four years later, in Athens, Georgina Harland ended third while fell placed second in Beijing. British men’s number one Nick Woodbridge was measured a lock for selection for his second Games and he’ll be joined by Beijing team-mate Sam Weale.
