Modern Pentathlon

The UIPM 2022 Pentathlon Junior World Championships continued today with 36 athletes competing for a place in the Men’s Final.

Egypt was the best-performing team with four athletes qualifying for the 18-strong Final, including senior world silver medallist Mohamed Elgendy (EGY), who will start on ‘Super Saturday’ 15 points behind overall leader Radoslav Stoychev of Bulgaria.

Semi-final A was won by Moutaz Mohamed (EGY), 2sec ahead of Titas Puronas of Lithuania, Charles Brown of Great Britain, Melvin Perrier of France and Elgendy (EGY).

Another Egyptian, Noureldim Karim (EGY), won Semi-final B with the same points total (1,177), finishing just ahead of Stoychev (BUL), Yuriy Kovalchuk of Ukraine and Mihaly Koleszar of Hungary.
