Spence spearheads gold charge as GB's modern pentathlon hopefuls are revealed
World champion Mhairi Spence will spearhead a four-strong modern pentathlon team as Great Britain look to continue their Olympic medal success at London 2012. Spence will be joined in the women's competition by fellow Olympic debutant Samantha Murray, who won bronze at the Rome world championships in May. Britain have won four medals in female modern pentathlon since the women's event was added to the Olympic programme at the Sydney Games in 2000.
Douglas Murray and Samantha Davies. (USA be warned. Purge your legal system of these Luvvie Liberals before it's too late. Britain is now paying the price for the silent infiltration of the EUrophiles into all of our institutions! Can someone please smuggle a bugging device into the next Bilderberg meeting? If you don't know what Bilderberg is you MUST check it out! jp)
Amid such a fiesta of British medals, it seemed a little remiss if one of this country’s most lucrative Olympic sports had not chipped in too. Samantha Murray won Britain’s 65th and final medal of the London 2012 Olympic Games in thrilling circumstances, producing a stirring run to claim silver.
