Mhairi Spence

Great Britain's Mhairi Spence finished seventh at the Modern Pentathlon World Cup Final in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.

The 27-year-old reigning world champion was in the top-10 throughout the day and went into the final event, the combined run/shoot, in second place overall.

But despite two sub-13 second shoots, she dropped out of contention for the medals on her fourth and final visit to the shooting range.

Team-mates Samantha Murray and Katy Burke ended their campaigns in 30th and 32nd places, respectively.

Ukraine's Victoria Tereshuk took gold with 5440 in the climax to the annual World Cup series of modern pentathlon competitions.

Ekaterina Khuraskina won silver, a mere 28 points behind Tereshuk, while another Ukrainian Ganna Buriak claimed bronze with 5388 points.
