Ireland's Arthur Lanigan-O'Keeffe has won the Penathlon World Cup in Bulgaria this afternoon.

Lanigan-O'Keeffe needed a first-placed finish in the final event of the competition known as the 'laser-run' to become world champion, and he did so, finishing ahead of South Korea's Jun Woong-tae.

Ireland's Lanigan-O'Keefe has attended two Olympic games in the modern pentathlon, finishing eighth at the 2016 event in Brazil, and this is his first world championship win.

The modern pentathlon has been part of the Olympic games since 1912, and sees athletes compete in five events - fencing, swimming, equestrian show jumping and a combined-event 'laser-run', where competitors complete four rounds of laser pistol shooting, with an 800-metre run between each round.

Ireland teammate Natalya Coyle had already won a silver medal at the event after finishing second in the woman's competition yesterday,

Coyle has also attended two Olympic games, with a sixth-placed finish in 2016 her best performance to date.
