Kilkenny’s Arthur Lanigan-O’Keffee has won a bronze medal at the Modern Pentathlon World Cup Final in Astana, Kazakhstan, today.

Having been in fifth position following Thursday’s fencing, the 26 year-old dual Olympian put himself into medal contention after his performances in swimming, horse riding and run-shoot.

South Korea claimed both the gold and silver medals with Jinhwa Jung winning the final ahead of countryman Woongtae Jun.

Lanigan-O’Keeffe competed at both the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games, finishing in a credible 8th place in Rio.
