Gravesend's Kate French won a bronze medal as part of a three-strong GB team in the women’s relay at the Modern Pentathlon World Championships in Rome.

French (pictured) was joined by Katy Burke and Katy Livingston as 12 teams contested Monday’s event, with the British trio eighth after the fencing and fifth after the swimming.

With the third-best riding performance of the day, the British trio went into the run/shoot in fourth place behind leaders Korea, with reigning champions Hungary second and Germany third.

Burke handed over to French in third place after two shoots and runs, and Britain were still third when French passed on to Livingston. Livingston dropped out of the top-three in her opening shoot, but produced a strong final run to secure Britain’s first medal of the championships behind winners Germany and second-placed China.
