Cooke in line up for final World Cup event
» CHELTENHAM’S world modern pentathlon champion Jamie Cooke is in the Great Britain line-up for World Cup 4 as a strong looking British team heads to the Czech Republic this weekend.
Cooke is in a men’s quartet of Tom Toolis, 2018 European medallist Joe Choong and Sam Curry, who made his first World Cup final of the season last week in Hungary.

After a quiet six months following his stunning success in Mexico City, the 28-year-old Cooke teamed up with Francesca Summers to take mixed relay silver at World Cup 2 before finishing fourth in the men’s individual competition at World Cup 3.
This weekend’s event is the last before the Olympic qualifying window opens on June 1 and it is also the final chance for athletes to qualify for the World Cup final in Tokyo from June 27-30.
The competition begins with women’s qualifying today (Thursday) and concludes with the mixed relay on Monday where Jo Muir and Cooke will team up for Pentathlon GB.
