Jan Bartu, Pentathlon GB Performance Director, said: “This is the first of four seasons leading up to Rio. There is a long way to, but the whole process is aimed towards Rio.”

“Samantha and Mhairi had a long, exhausting and very successful 2012 season, so we’ve given them time to regroup and come back to training gradually.”
