Plymouth pentathlete Bryson impresses at European Under-24 Championships

PLYMOUTH pentathlete Kerenza Bryson claimed a top 10 individual finish and helped Great Britain to a team bronze medal at the inaugural European Under-24 European Championship in Poland.

Bryson, now studying at Exeter University, came eighth overall at the event in Drzonkow.

With team-mate Zoe Davison taking fifth and Jess Varley ninth, the British girls secured a place on the podium.

Bryson made a great start to the competition by picking up 30 victories and just 12 defeats in her 42 fencing bouts. That placed her second in the early standings.

In the swim, she clocked 2:27.61 minutes, which saw her move into the ride in third place.

Bryson, along with the rest of the British girls, showed good form in the ride, picking up 286 points to start the laser-run in fourth spot.

Unusually the laser-run took place in a sportshall and so had to be split into two heats.

Bryson performed well in the discipline and challenge for a medal before eventually finishing eighth.
