Plymouth pentathlete Myles Pillage will make his individual senior World Championship debut in Mexico next month.
The 20-year-old has been named in an eight-strong Great Britain team to head to the competition in Mexico City.
Pillage has competed in three relay events at senior majors, including last year’s World Championships in Cairo where he and fellow junior athlete Bradley Sutton were unfortunate not to record a top 10 finish.
However, next month will mark his first individual appearance at this level and comes off the back of a strong season where he finished as the top British male athlete at both the Junior European and Junior World Championships, as well as claiming bronze in the men’s relay at the Junior European Championships alongside Sutton.
He is joined in the GB squad by Joe Choong, Jamie Cooke, Sam Curry, Kate French, Joanna Muir, Francesca Summers and Zoe Davison.
The men’s individual qualifying event will take place on Tuesday, September 11, with the final two days later.
