Natalya Coyle Makes it 2 in a Row with Top 10 Finish

It was a proud day for Ireland as Natalya Coyle crossed the finish line in 7th position at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio. This marks the second time that Natalya has finished inside the Top 10 finishers at the Olympics. After a solid performance in the Fencing Ranking Round and a flawless show in the Horse Riding, Natalya was 5th out of the gate for the Combined event. She was passed by the eventual champion from Australia, but you would never know she didn’t medal from her reaction after the event.

Natalya has made Ireland proud of her performance with the back to back Olympic accomplishment. She is a true Olympian and a role model for future female pentathletes as to the possibilities available when you simply work hard enough for them.

Pentathlon Ireland is proud of Natalya’s accomplishments and to call her our Olympian. Congratulations Natalya.
