UIPM 2024 Pentathlon Junior World Championships: Women’s Qualification

Modern Pentathlon

The UIPM 2024 Pentathlon Junior World Championships continued in Alexandria (EGY) on Tuesday as 64 of the best young women pentathletes fought through a frenetic Qualification phase.


Two separate groups of 32 contenders dug in on what proved another energy-sapping day when the temperatures hit 32C in the historic city. The 18 best performers in each group made it through to the Women’s Final which takes place on Super Saturday, June 29.


In the first group it was the home favourite and 13-year-old phenom Farida Khalil of Egypt who showed absolutely no ill-effects from her gold medal-clinching efforts in Monday’s Women’s Relay as she led all qualifiers with a whopping total of 1,374 points, good for a 26-second lead over the field. Khalil’s prowess in the Obstacle discipline was all too apparent as her time of 0:34.80 was fastest of all qualifiers and one of just two in Group A to break 40 seconds.


Behind her, Coline Flavin of France and reigning Women’s Junior World Champion Josefine Unterberger of Germany were in impressive form with Asian talents in the shape of Sumin Shin of Korea and China’s Jiayi Liu comfortably making it through. The big shock came further down the field where senior World No.11 Malak Ismail (EGY) failed to progress in spite of a blistering Laser Run, her struggles in Obstacle proving too difficult to overcome.


In the day’s second group, Viktoriia Sazonova (AIN) narrowly pipped Zeina Amer (EGY) in a fast finish, just two seconds separating them. Louison Cazaly (FRA), who won bronze in this competition in 2023, was also among the fastest qualifiers while Switzerland teenager Florina Jurt qualified in 11th place, joining her twin sister Katharina who had earlier progressed through Group A.


A total of 12 nations across three continents will be represented in the 36 Finalists on Super Saturday with Egypt, China, Germany, Hungary, France and Switzerland all boasting three each.
