PENTATHLON WORLD CUP PRAGUE: GOLD FOR FLAWLESS FRENCH (GBR)

Kate French of Great Britain has spoken of her gold-medal-winning performance in the Women's Final at UIPM 2019 Pentathlon World Cup Prague.


French (GBR) said: “I am very, very happy. I needed a good result. It has just been a really good day so I’m super pleased.
“Hopefully this means I will be competing at the Pentathlon World Cup Final and I’m really relieved about that and looking forward to it.
“It has been brilliant to have lots of our parents here, including my mum, who has come out. I could hear them all shouting at the finish line, and it was great to have that support.
“The first few competitions haven’t gone to plan, so I’m really pleased I have been able to get it right for this one.”
Silver medallist Gulnaz Gubaydullina of Russia and bronze medallist Jessica Varley (GBR) also expressed delight at their performances.
Gubaydullina (RUS) said: “I am very happy. All my disciplines were very good today. All season this has been normal, and I am happy with this result and I just want to say thank you to my coaches, the administrators and everybody else involved in the competition.
“In the future I want the same – to be in the top 10 and to be winning. It’s a lot of work and I’m looking forward to the Olympic Games and the World Championships.”
Varley (GBR) said: “I’m absolutely over the moon. I’ve been working for this basically my whole life, and I am so excited it has finally happened.
“This season I have gone from nothing to 7th at World Cup Szekesfehervar and now 3rd in Prague – it has all come together at just the right time. Hopefully that will be enough to secure my qualifying spot for Tokyo and I hope to be there.
“I don’t think I realised I was in a podium position until the last run. I had a wobbly shoot in the semi-final and I knew I had to shoot much better, and I’m so happy I did.
“Kate has won, which is absolutely fantastic, and we’ve got our whole team out here and the support is amazing. I couldn’t do it without them.”
