Mhairi Spence: The GB pentathlete is on track at the Modern Pentathlon World Championships in Rome
All four British athletes have made it through to Saturday's women's final at the Modern Pentathlon World Championships in Rome.
Their performances this weekend are expected to play a major role in deciding which two of the quartet claim the Olympic berths available and all made sure they stayed in the hunt with top-12 finishes in their respective semi-finals.
Olympic silver medallist Heather Fell overcame some tricky moments in the final combined run-and-shoot to cross the line eighth in semi-final B, four places behind team-mate Mhairi Spence.
Spence, British number one, was slightly below par in both the swimming and fencing yet posted the third quickest combined in hot conditions in the Italian capital.
Following recent poor form, 21-year-old Freyja Prentice finished fifth in semi-final C, while Samantha Murray, who has pushed her way firmly into Olympic contention with a string of outstanding performances this year, was also comfortable in ninth spot.
Sam Weale, Nick Woodbridge and Jamie Cooke compete for Britain in the men's semi-finals on Friday.
