Great Britain women win European modern pentathlon team gold

Mhairi Spence

Mhairi Spence, Kate French and Samantha Murray won Britain's third medal at the 2013 Modern Pentathlon European Championships as the trio claimed women's team gold in Poland.

GB finished 140 points ahead of second-placed Ukraine with Germany in third following the five events.

Pentathlon GB performance director Jan Bartu said: "They dominated the competition, everything went for them.

"It was a really well deserved gold and a very positive experience for them."

Britain's Freyja Prentice just missed out on an individual medal, finishing fourth in the individual event with Olympic silver medallist Murray seventh, French in 10th and world champion Spence in 12th.

French and Murray won gold in the team relay earlier in the championships along with Katy Burke, while Jamie Cooke, Sam Curry and Joe Evans won bronze in the men's event.
