Zoe Davison (Collingwood) had another massively successful day representing Great Britain in Modern Pentathlon at an international competition on 4th March.

The day started with the fencing discipline where Zoe topped the girls’ standings on 15 victories and 6 defeats. Behind the 18 year old Wycliffe student were a trio of athletes on 14 victories and 7 defeats – Hertfordshire’s Alexandra Bousfield, Germany’s Franziska Schamel and Croatia’s Anna Vuletic.

The girls’ swim was dominated by the British athletes in the field with the 10 quickest times all coming from home athletes. Top of the pile was Genna Suddes with an impressive 2:10.29, just over 3 seconds ahead of Zoe (2:13.55) in 2nd and Georgina Mitchell just 0.06 seconds further back in 3rd. It meant there was a British 1-2-3 ahead of the laser-run with Wycliffe’s Zoe leading Alexandra and Olivia. Despite a much better shoot Zoe was still over taken by team mate Olivia and a Portuguese athlete, but remained very pleased to make it to the podium, wining an individual Bronze medal.

The team Gold medal for Great Britain was a great bonus.

Following the previous selection events two weeks ago and this outstanding performance, Zoe has now been selected to compete in Switzerland later in March. Not only will this be her first full Pentathlon at International level (Under 19 does not include the ride phase), but she will be competing as an adult.

This is a wonderful achievement and testament to all Zoe’s hard work, effort and training in all the Modern Pentathlon disciplines over the previous years. Good luck!
