UIPM 2018 World Biathle/Triathle Championships: Pribylova & Svechota (CZE) Double Up


Czech Republic duo Eliska Pribylova and Ondrej Svechota made it two gold medals in two days as they picked up a second Mixed Relay title on day two of the UIPM 2018 World Biathle/Triathle Championships in Sahl Hasheesh, Egypt.

Pribylova & Svechota (CZE) added Triathle gold to the Biathle prize they won on day one, this time with a huge winning margin of more than a minute.

Valeriya Permykina and Vladyslav Rydvanskyi claimed silver for Ukraine, with Lena Gottwald and Pierre Jander of Germany picking up bronze in the senior category.

Elsewhere on day two, there was a historic first international medal in UIPM Sports for Nepal, as Saloni Lama and Rahul Darshan won bronze in the Under 19 category.

The podium was an all-Asian affair as the Nepalese duo joined gold medallists Kazakhstan (Ashraf Kamalova & Denis Tunitskiy) and silver medallists India (Ahilya Sachin Chavan & Ritik Sharma) in receiving their medals.

The Czech Republic also won junior gold to go with their senior success, thanks to Karolina Krenkova and Martin Vlach, while Egypt dominated the youth categories with three gold medals, each of the winning duos forcing South African rivals to accept silver. South Africa won U11 gold and one of the Masters titles, with the other two going to Spain and Great Britain.
