And it was the perfect preparation as Olivia prepares for two international competitions.

Olivia makes her World Cup debut this week for Great Britain’s senior team in Hungary and the following week has been selected to compete in the Czech Republic Women’s Open.

The tetrathlon, it has all the modern pentathlon disciplines except horse riding, saw Olivia finish runner-up.

Olivia recorded a personal best time in the laser run and dad Chris described his daughter as giving a strong performance.

Looking ahead to Hungary, Olivia will take part in a mixed relay alongside one of the male competitors.

And a strong field is also expected in the Czech event, both competitions an important part of the build up to this summer’s junior European and junior World Championships which Olivia is hoping to be selected for.

Bath University, where Olivia is studying, is also hosting the senior European pentathlon championships in August.

But with only four seniors selected to compete, Olivia would have to do well in forthcoming events to enhance her prospects of selection.

Olivia recently finished third in the Swiss Women International in only her second overseas competition.
