An 11-strong Pentathlon GB squad featuring Clitheroe’s Olympic silver medallist Samantha Murray and former world champion Mhairi Spence has been selected to compete at next month’s World Championships in Poland.

The championships, which run from September 1 to September 9, are the last major competition before athletes begin the process of trying to qualify places for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

The Pentathlon GB team will arrive in Warsaw as reigning women’s team champions, after Kate French, Murray and Spence struck gold at last year’s competition in Chinese Taipei.

That trio returns to action in the individual competition in Warsaw, where they are joined by Freyja Prentice. Three of the four will be nominated scorers towards the GB team score in Warsaw.

Murray and Alice Fitton will get Britain’s campaign underway in the first competition of the championships, the women’s relay.
