Coyle thrilled with seventh place

Irish competitor improves on London showing

Natalya Coyle said that she was "delighted" to finish in seventh place in the women's modern pentathlon at the Rio Olympics.

Having come home seventh in London four years ago, the County Meath competitor improved by two spots in Brazil.

Coyle was sixth ahead of the final discipline, the run/shoot, with hope of claiming a medal. She produced a very strong shooting performance but was unable to do enough in the run to secure a spot on the podium.

However, the 25-year-old was in very high spirits afterwards.

"I haven't had the world's best season coming into this, and I knew I was peaking for it," Coyle told RTE Sport.

"I improved on London and that was my goal - to come out with all personal bests today, and I've definitely done that, so I'm delighted."

Australia's Chloe Esposito secured gold, as Poland's Oktaiwia Nowacka faded to claim bronze.

The silver medal went to Elodie Clouvel of France.
