Spence recalls 'bittersweet' 2012

Modern Pentathlete Mhairi Spence tells BBC West Sport she views last year as "bittersweet" after her performances in the World Championships and Olympics.

The Bath-based 27-year-old won her first world title in Rome last May, but failed to claim a medal at London 2012, finishing 21st.

She will now attempt to defend her crown at the Worlds in Taiwan next month.
