GB pentathletes take relay gold
Team GB
GB's trio celebrate their relay success
Britain ended their Modern Pentathlon World Championships campaign on a high with gold in the women's team relay.

Katy Livingston, Mhairi Spence and Lindsey Weedon led going into the final discipline in Berlin - the 1500m relay.

They just held off a strong finish by the Polish team to win gold, with hosts Germany taking bronze.

"We've had some ups and downs here, but this shows that there's plenty of quality in the team," said GB performance director Jan Bartu.

"The team relay isn't an Olympic event, but we wanted to go home with something, so we're pleased that it was a gold."

The British trio were in third place after the first discipline, the shooting, and climbed to second behind Russia after the fencing.

They held onto second after the swimming, and grabbed a 42-point lead in the riding.


Final positions in women's team relay:
1. Great Britain (K Livingston, M Spence, L Weedon) - 5382 pts
2. Poland (P Boeinsz, S Czwojdinska, M Dziadura) - 5336
3. Germany (L Schoneborn, E Trautmann, J Kohlmann) - 5278
