Pentathlete Bradley Sutton excells at Youth Olympic qualifier
BRADLEY Sutton turned in an excellent performance at the European Continental and Youth Olympic Pentathlon Qualifier in Solihull.
The 15-year-old from Hatch Warren finished 11th overall in the event competing against 16 and 17 year-olds which not a bad result.
The Brighton Hill Community School pupil was sixth in the first event a 200 metre swim and then in the fencing was ninth placed from 39 bouts.
In the shoot and run technical issues with the laser gun and target meant he lost out on a possible ninth place finish and had to settle for 13th.
His finishing position saw him miss out on qualification for the European competition but as he is building up for next year to achieve his target to get into the Pentathlon GB World Class Programme.
Next up for Sutton is the Biathle Worlds in Cyprus in early October followed by two qualification biathlon competitions in the same month.
A busy October will finish with a full Yorkshire Pentathlon.
