Plymouth’s Pillage claims top five finish at British Modern Pentathlon Champs

PLYMOUTH’S Myles Pillage finished fifth overall and third junior at the British Modern Pentathlon Championships held in Bath at the weekend.

The competition proved incredibly tight with just 32 points separating the top five men on the day.

Olympian Joe Choong won with 1,465 points, with Sam Curry taking second with 1,463, Bradley Sutton third with 1,458, Jamie Harper fourth with 1,434 and Pillage just a point behind with 1,433.

Pillage made a great start to the competition by recording the fastest swim of the day with a time of 2:01.38.

He then produced a decent fencing display, recording 12 victories before picking up 293 points in the ride, which left him in with a chance of a top three finish going in the final laser-run combined event.

Although Pillage produced a solid time of 11:40.77 for the last discipline, Curry and Harper produced impressive times to seal top four spots.
