TROWBRIDGE athlete Sarah Wilson scooped two medals at the recent Tetrathlon World Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Representing Pentathlon GB at international level for the third time this year, the 18-year-old arrived home with a silver and a bronze medal draped around her neck.

The first, a silver in the mixed relay with partner, Josh Hood, saw them go one better than their bronze in the European Championships last month.

The pair recorded a 2min16 swim, with each of them having to do 100m of the 200m.

A fantastic joint fence saw them come away with 25 victories (V) to 15 defeats (D) result, which put them in third place for that discipline.

This put them in 8th place overall going into the laser run.

The girls set off first and Wilson put in a sterling effort to move them up to 3rd place after her two shoots and 800m runs.

Hood kept that lead for his first shoot and run, but a brilliant second visit to the range with just a 10 second, five-green-light shoot saw him set off in second place, a lead he maintained through the second 800m to take the silver medal.

The very next day, Wilson was up again for the qualifying heats of the individual competition.

A steady 2min38 swim, followed by a positive 14 V to 11 D fence, saw her standing in 14th going into her strongest discipline, the laser run.

The Trowbridge pentathlete recorded the quickest time of her heat, moving her up to sixth place, gaining an automatic qualifying spot.

And with just one day of rest, she was back in action for the World Championship finals.

With a three-second improvement in the swim, courtesy of a 2.35.15, Wilson then recorded another positive fence (18 V – 17 D), putting her in 23rd place going into the handicapped start of the laser run.

The Trowbridge athlete once again put in an outstanding performance in the range and out on the run, surging through the field to a fine 13th place.

The result meant she claimed a team bronze medal with fellow Pentathlon GB athletes, Annabel Denton and Emma Whitikar.
