Plymouth pentathlete Pillage helps Team GB win European Games gold medal

PLYMOUTH modern pentathlete Myles Pillage helped Great Britain win a team gold medal at the European Games in Krakow on Saturday.

Pillage nearly made it two medals in Poland, but he just missed out on an individual one by six points.

He scored 1,524 points to finish fourth in a strong men’s individual final.

But with his team-mate Joe Choong, the current Olympic and world champion, taking silver and Charlie Brown coming 11th, Team GB took the top honours in the team competition ahead of France and Italy, who took silver and bronze.

Fellow Plymouth pentathlete Kerenza Bryson narrowly missed out on picking up a medal in Krakow.

She finished sixth in the women’s individual final with 1,417 points, which was just 11 points off bronze, which was won by her team-mate Olivia Green.

Despite Green and Bryson both finishing in the top six, Great Britain agonisingly missed out on a team medal by just two points, finishing fourth behind Germany, Lithuania and Hungary.
