Swim win not enough for Murray
7:55am Monday 3rd February 2014 in Sport
EAST Lancashire’s Modern Penathlon ace Samantha Murray finished 18th in the International Indoor Competition in Hungary despite clinching victory in the swim section of the competition.
Murray, a silver medalist at the London 2012 Olympics, enjoyed a strong swim to top the leaderboard in that event and having already secured a top 10 finish in the fencing where she placed eighth, the Clitheroe star will have had designs on a top 10 finish.
But the 24-year-old suffered in the riding where she could only finish 37th and a poor finish in the combined run/shoot, where she was 43rd, left her 18th overall in an event won by the host nation’s Sarolta Kovacs.
