Plymouth pentathlete Bryson claims another top 10 World Cup finish

PLYMOUTH pentathlete Kerenza Bryson claimed her second UIPM World Cup top 10 finish of the season with a strong display in Hungary.

Having finished eighth in the opening World Cup event in Cairo, Egypt, the previous month, Bryson backed that up with a 10th placed finished at World Cup II in Budapest.

Bryson had dug deep in the laser-run of the semi-finals to secure her place in the 18-strong final.

With the results from the fencing ranking round carrying over, it meant that Bryson began the day in ninth place.

However, she produced a good ride in the opening discipline of the day to move up the leaderboard to seventh after collecting just eight penalty points.

She then secured four additional points in the fencing bonus round before heading to the swimming pool, where Bryson slipped to 11th after touching the wall in 2:24.88.

But Bryson produced another solid laser-run of 11:52.90 to move up a spot and into the top 10, just two places behind her GB team-mate Olivia Green.

Gold went to Hungary’s Michelle Gulyás on home soil, with Italy’s Elena Micheli and Egypt’s Salma Abdelmaksoud joining her on the podium.
