They also won the combined event, shoot and run, with Isabelle winning the static shoot with a personal best of 90 points.

The Whitakers, Charlotte, 16, and Emma, 13, competed in their first full pentathlons as they had to ride, swim, shoot and fence before ending with a combined run and shoot against the best in the country.

Charlotte pulled off an amazing shoot, scoring 91 out of 100, followed by a personal best swim.

After winning half her fencing bouts an excellent shoot and run saw her take third.

Emma had some tough opposition in her age group but a fine performance on the combined event gave her fourth.
