Modern pentathlon - Elodie Clouvel: Vice-World Champion and qualified for Tokyo!
Last weekend, the Modern Pentathlon World Championships were held in Cairo, Egypt. The Championships were a qualifying event for the Olympic Games. Team ENGIE pentathlete, Elodie, won her ticket for Tokyo with a fantastic second place! In second place after the first three disciplines (fencing, swimming, show-jumping), Elodie set off behind Hungary’s Michelle Gulyas in the final event, a laser run, combining pistol-shooting and long-distance running. Elodie managed to catch her, but she couldn’t do anything against the incredible come-back by the Belarusian Anastasiya Prokopenko, who won the world title.
Congratulations on your silver medal, Elodie!
“It’s been a difficult season for me, due to problems and injuries. But I’m in good form and the day went well. Now, I’m concentrating on the Games!”
A date for your diary. Elodie will be in action on 5 and 6 August.
