2:24pm Sunday 22nd December 2013 in Sport
JAMIE COOKE, the world-ranked modern pentathlete from Shipton Olliffe, received an Outstanding Performance of the Year Award at the annual celebrations of Pentathlon GB held at Bath Cricket Club.
Cooke collected his award for winning his first World Cup gold, at Budapest in May.
He ends the year ranked fourth in the world.
The main prize, though, went to his GB team-mate Nick Woodbridge, the world championship silver medallist, who lifted the British Modern Pentathlon Athlete of the Year Award for 2013.
The double Olympian made a piece of history when he won the individual silver medal at the world championships in Chinese Taipei in August.
His medal was the first individual world championships medal won by a British male pentathlete since Richard Phelps’ gold in 1993.
