PLYMOUTH’S Kerenza Bryson will begin her 2017 modern pentathlon campaign this weekend when she competes at the opening national ranking event of the year in Bath.
Bryson enjoyed a successful 2016, which included retaining her under-19 British title, winning a relay bronze medal at the European Youth Championships, competing at the World Youth Championships and making her senior international debut. She will be hoping to build on that this year.
She goes into this weekend’s event, having just returned from representing Great Britain at fencing.
Bryson was part of the nine-strong GB epee team that competed at the Junior World Cup in Dijon, France.
The Plymouth athlete finished 35th out of the 126 competitors. She was Britain’s top finisher and one of only two to progress through to the round of 64.
Bryson was also selected for the team event in Dijon, joining Danielle Lawson, Laura Sheffield and Lydia Stainer in the GB line-up. They finished eighth overall after beating Czech Republic 43-36 in the round of 16 before suffering defeats to Italy, Israel and Romania.
