Tokyo marks Natalya’s third Olympic Games. In 2012 she became Ireland’s first modern pentathlete to qualify for an Olympics since the 1980s and finished ninth in London 2012. In Rio 2016 she finished sixth and she qualified very early for Tokyo 2020 by finishing 5th at the 2018 European Championships. She won her first individual World Cup medal in Sophia in 2018 (she had already made podium in mixed relay) and she won another individual World Cup silver in Egypt 2019. In the past 12 years she has made the World Cup Finals (involving the world’s top 36) nine times, narrowly finishing fourth in 2018 and fifth in mid-May this year.
