From a field of 78, France’s Rio 2016 silver medallist Elodie Clouvel ended joint highest of the 36 qualifiers with 1,047, the same number of points gained by South Korea’s Kim Sun-woo. Laura Asadauskaite of Lithuania, the London 2012 champion, was sixth on the day with 1,032, four points behind her third-place compatriot Gintare Venckauskaite.
Oktawia Nowacka of Poland, the Rio 2016 bronze medallist, was 16th with 1,028. World number seven Annika Schley of Germany and Britain’s world number nine Kate French of Great Britain also advanced. The event continues tomorrow with qualifying for the men’s singles final on Saturday, before resulting on Sunday with the mixed relay.
Lithuanian star Laura Asadauskaite surely agreed. The London 2012 gold medallist booked her place in the field for Olympic 2020 after beating Rio 2016 silver medal-winner Elodie Clouvel to the women’s world title on Friday, and she cannot wait to return to the Japanese capital.
Asadauskaite told the UIPM “Today is a very glad day. I had a very good fence, a good ride and swim and also a good laser run. I am very happy because I have the qualification for the Olympic 2020 Games. Look you next year when I will come back to her. l like this city very much. I think I am ready for the Olympic 2020 Games.”
One of the many thoughtful touches added to the complex by the organizers was representations of Baron Pierre de Coubertin either side of the first jump on the riding course. The father of the modern Games was also the founder of modern pentathlon, first introducing the sport to the wider public Olympic 1912 Games at the Stockholm.
