Natalya Coyle and Eanna Bailey made history in the USA yesterday when they won Ireland’s first ever medal at a modern pentathlon World Cup competition.

The pair claimed silver in the mixed relay event in Palm Springs, California.

Bailey and Coyle had both competed in the individual events in the preceding days, finishing 15th and 25th respectively.

Arthur Lanigan-O’Keeffe also competed in the men’s event, finishing 16th.

The team will miss World Cup 2 in Rio and return to training in Ireland to prepare for their next competition, World Cup 3 in China.
