Justifying her selection as part of the Mexican elite squad this year, Marianna Arceo repaid the faith shown in her by the national coaches by storming to victory in the Women’s National draw. Imperious the whole way through the competition, the 19-year-old was simply a cut above the rest of the competitors and more than deserved her title.
Saúl Rivera de Jalisco made his mark in the Junior draw with an impressive victory against a strong field to claim gold. Overall the competition showed that the sport of Modern Pentathlon in Mexico is developing fast with some real performers coming through the ranks.
