After winning the silver medal at modern pentathlon's World Cup Finals in Minsk, Irish Olympians Natalya Coyle and Arthur Lanigan-O'Keeffe are ranked No 1 in the world.
The silver was a third for the Irish pair this season and sends them into the men and women's individual competitions today and tomorrow in confident form.
A solid performance moved them into second place behind Belarus and ahead of Korea. "Hopefully next time it will be gold!" said Coyle.
