UIPM 2024 Pentathlon Junior World Championships

Scimitar is proud to be the official kit supplier to Pentathlon GB, and the whole team are delighted to see that the future of Pentathlon GB is bright.

Battling scorching 30°C temperatures at the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport in Alexandria (Egypt), British junior modern pentathletes achieved commendable results last week at the UIPM 2024 Pentathlon Junior World Championships, despite the challenging conditions.

James Hulme, Natalie Hatfield & Gina Speakman all put in strong performances to reach the final. Hulme, in particular, impressed in the fencing, scoring 12 bonus points.

Final Day Misery for Egypt

Elsewhere, France disrupted Egypt’s farewell celebrations as Louison Cazaly and Diego Lavillat claimed gold in the Mixed Relay on the final day of the UIPM 2024 Pentathlon Junior World Championships.

France trailed behind Egypt’s Farida Khalil and Mazen Shaban in the first three disciplines, but they excelled when it counted most, delivering a remarkable Laser Run to secure the world title.

Poor shooting from the Egyptians in the final lap allowed Esther Fernandez Donda and Tim Leh of Germany to overtake Khalil and Shaban, winning silver and relegating the host nation to bronze.

Korean Anguish Again

As in last year’s competition, Korea narrowly missed out on a Mixed Relay medal, finishing in 4th place, while Hungary came 5th and Italy completed the top six. Egypt found some consolation in topping the competition medal table, with three golds, a silver, and two bronzes.

The Mixed Relay success capped a brilliant week for Cazaly, who secured her second gold, having been part of the Women’s Team champions 24 hours earlier. Leh and Fernandez Donda’s performance earned Germany their third medal.

The UIPM 2024 Pentathlon Junior World Championships were record-breaking over the six highly entertaining days, with the world’s best U22 pentathlon athletes setting five new junior world records in total.
