UKs James Cook Dramatically Wins World Title in Modern Pentathlon

MEXICO CITY British James Cooke won dramatically on Thursday the World Modern Pentathlon Championships in Mexico City, by taking advantage of the early celebrations of French Valentin Prades before beating him on the finish line.

Prades passed Olympic runner-up Pavlo Tymoshenko from Ukraine in the last 100 meters and headed for the finish line. When Prades reached the final part of the track, he saw that his rival was more than five meters behind and began to raise his arm for the expected victory when Cooke appeared from behind and beat him by three hundredths of a second.

Cooke won with 1,435 points, same as Prades, while Tymoshenko was third with 1,429.

After ranking sixteenth in fencing with 18 wins and 17 losses, Cooke was second in the swimming with 1:55.25 minutes and climbed to fifth place. Although he later had a bad result in the equestrian events, he was placed fourth in the laser run, which was enough for him to win the title.

France, with a team consisting of Prades, Valentin Belaud and Brice Loubet, had revenge in the team competition, winning with 4,250 points, followed by the United Kingdom team, comprising Cooke, Myles Pillage and European Championships bronze medalist Joseph Choong.
