KRZYSZTOF KURUC

Former Coopers pupil Tom Toolis has qualified for the latest Modern Pentathlon World Cup final in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Romford’s Toolis, appearing in his second World Cup of the season, began with a time of 2.08.75 in the 200m swim, which left the 25-year-old well placed.

And he produced 16 wins from his 25 bouts in the fencing round to move up to fourth overall in his qualifying group, before a strong finish in the laser-run.

Toolis remained part of the leading pack throughout the 3,200m course to ensure his place in Saturday’s final, where he will line up alongside GB teammates Sam Curry and Jamie Cooke, who qualified from one of the other two groups as a total of 79 male athletes competed for places.

All four British women in the squad, Kate French, Samantha Murray, Francesca Summers and Jessica Varley, are also into their final, making it the first full house of qualifiers this season.
