    Weale lies in 7th place overall after 3 events and Woodbridge in 9th.
    Only 3 people out of 37 did a clear round on the horse jumping event!
    The final combined event of shooting and running is on at 18.45pm BST

    MODERN PENTATHLON (08:00-18:50): Mhairi Spence

    Mhairi Spence is the sport's world champion, winning gold ahead of team-mate and bronze medallist Samantha Murray in Rome four months ago. Picking a favourite in modern pentathlon is tough, though - the sport is so unpredictable (particularly the showjumping, where riders are paired with horses at random) that the 26-year-old Scot will need to rely on a good start in the fencing and gain momentum from there.

    Samantha Murray is in third place after 3 events. And her surname is Murray. So come on Murray



    I though the Korean rider yesterday was very brave to get back on his horse after it reared up and fell over backwards. That could have been very nasty indeed. Its not often that you see a horse do that. I am surprised they used a horse that could get so spooked.

    It does seem a bit of a lottery with the horse riding, which kind of spoils it.
    Since its at risk of being dropped from the olympics, maybe it's time for a modern "modern" pentathlon- ditch the horses for bmx bikes or something? Might get more people taking it up?

    Like the how they've combined the run & shoot into a biathlon thing-
    C'mon Murray!

    Lol- they've already got laser shooting, so they're not far off. maybe all they need to do is to make the fencing into selling stolen wii's and they're there!
