Jo books place in world finals
Jo Muir has made it through to the finals of the World Modern Pentathlon Championships for the first time in her career.
The Haugh of Urr athlete produced a stunning laster run to secure a top 10 place in Mexico City.
The 24-year-old started off with fencing but finished with 11 victories and 22 defeats, giving herself an uphill struggle for the rest of the day.
However, she was quicker than Team GB colleague Kate French in the pool, finishing in a time of 2:18.82 to move up to 25th in the standings.
The top 15 finishers in the group made it through to the final and it looked difficult for Jo as she started the laser run 36 seconds behind the elusive spot.
But she is one of the best laser run athletes in the world, producing a great display of running and shooting to cross the finish line alongside Rio Olympian French.
That put the pair into the women’s final along with Team GB’s Francesca Summers, who was taking part in the second round of qualifiers
The final began on Tuesday with the fencing before the rest of the competition on Wednesday.
