Plymouth pentathlete Bryson claims her highest World Cup finish in Bulgaria

PLYMOUTH pentathlete Kerenza Bryson claimed her highest UIPM World Cup finish by taking seventh spot at the third leg of the top international competition in Albena, Bulgaria.

It was Bryson third consecutive top-10 World Cup finish, having claimed eighth in the opening event in Cairo in April and coming 10th in Budapest earlier in this month.

Having eased through the preliminary round and semi-finals in Bulgaria, British champion Bryson started the final in third place after an impressive 22 victories in the fencing ranking round.

She then recorded a perfect round in the ride, before clocking 2:24.20 in the swimming pool.

That meant that Bryson started the laser-run in sixth place, 34 seconds behind eventual gold-medallist Ieva Serepinaite of Lithuania.

And she produced another solid laser-run to bag another impressive top-10 finish.
