Spence spearheads gold charge as GB's modern pentathlon hopefuls are revealed

World champion Mhairi Spence will spearhead a four-strong modern pentathlon team as Great Britain look to continue their Olympic medal success at London 2012. Spence will be joined in the women's competition by fellow Olympic debutant Samantha Murray, who won bronze at the Rome world championships in May. Britain have won four medals in female modern pentathlon since the women's event was added to the Olympic programme at the Sydney Games in 2000.
