Kate French continued her superb form by winning the 2021 Pentathlon World Cup final in Hungary.
French, from Gravesend, had previously taken gold in Budapest and silver in Sofia during her previous appearances in this year’s World Cup and rounded off the competition by clinching another victory at the showpiece event.
The World Cup is open to the top 36 male and female athletes and is ideal preparation for the summer’s Olympics in Tokyo.
French - the World no.3 - said: “It has been a long process to get to this point so I'm really happy.
"I'm heading in the right direction and hope to keep training hard and aiming for gold in Tokyo."
French finished ahead of Germany’s Annika Schleu and home competitor Michelle Gulyas, in second and third respectively. Next best Brit was Joanna Muir, in sixth place.
Modern pentathlon combines fencing, swimming, horse riding and laser run (shooting/running).
The 2021 Pentathlon and Laser Run World Championships in Cairo take place next month.
