Army athlete Kerenza Bryson has been picked to represent Great Britain at the Pentathlon World Championships.

The young officer has been named alongside current Olympic champion Joe Choong in a six-strong GB squad to compete at the tournament in Egypt.

Bryson will be making her World Championships debut and goes into the competition having enjoyed successive top 10 finishes in the first three Pentathlon World Cup events of the season.

She was forced to miss the World Cup Final in order to sit her medical exams at the University of Plymouth.

Bryson, who won the Rising Star of the Year Award at the Army Sports Awards in 2019, is bidding for a GB place at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.

The Pentathlon World Championships are currently under way in Alexandria.
