The rest of the sports super stars were able to qualify in comfortably. The most impressive performances of the day was local favourite World #2 Adam Marosi (HUN) who looks to have recaptured his world beating form of 2009. The Czech pair of current European Champion David Svoboda and 2009 Champion Ondrej were also impressive and have looked to have escaped their form slump that they endured at the beginning of the year and are now firing on all cylinders.
The local Hungarians had alot to cheer about with 4 Hungarian’s qualifying for the final, in addition to Marosi there was also Robert Kasza, Peter Tibolya and Junior World Champion Bence Demeter showing good form. All these athletes will be looking for success on Sunday in front of their home fans.
Other nations that had a successful day were Ukraine who qualified all of their athletes and Korea, Poland, Italy, Czech Republic and Great Britain who qualified 3 out of a possible 4. This was particularly satisfying for the British team who failed to qualify even one athlete for World Cup #2
Stay tuned for all the action for the Women’s final tomorrow, with live results and updates on Pentathlon.org.
