FORMER world junior champion Jamie Cooke lines up for Team GB in the Modern Pentathlon European Championships at Székesfehérvár in Hungary this week.

Cooke, from Shipton Oliffe, will be joined by Nick Woodbridge, making a competitive comeback after almost a year off, Joe Evans and junior Joe Choong.

Woodbridge said: “It’s a bit of a warm-up for the world championships this September, then I’ll get in a serious amount of rehab over the winter. I should really see the benefits then.”

The European Championships run from Thursday, July 10 to Tuesday, July 15. The world championships take place in Warsaw at the start of September.

The 2015 European Championships will be contested at the University of Bath from August 17 to 23 and will be the first opportunity for European athletes to achieve the Olympic qualifying standard for the Rio 2016 Games.
