Britain’s Kerenza Bryson built on her best-ever fencing performance to clinch the second UIPM World Cup win of her career in the Turkish capital with Seo Chang-wan securing men's gold.

Bryson, whose previous World Cup win came last May in Sofia, had taken bronze in the opening World Cup event in Cairo behind Hungary's Michelle Gulyas. The 25-year-old based out of the University of Bath was in magnificent form in the fencing ranking round as she won 27 of her 35 bouts.

That gave her a 20-point lead in the women’s final and she maintained that with an outstanding ride, using all her equestrian skills to control a nervous horse and complete the course without picking up any penalties.

Her rivals were able to close the gap slightly in the swimming but Bryson underlined her dominance in the laser-run, eventually crossing the line 26 seconds clear of South Korea's Seong Seung-min. Egyptian teenager Malak Ismail was third.

"I am on a run at the moment and I feel like it’s just positive vibes all round,” said Bryson. “It couldn’t really be going any better, to be honest, and I was really happy to start the laser-run in first because that’s not comfortable for me. I’m not used to starting in first and I was definitely not in my safe space, so it was really good practice to deal with that pressure.

 "I’ve just got to stay confident in myself and trust in the process, my coaches and the programme. If I can keep going and trusting in myself it will keep going in the right direction for the Games.”

Bryson will form part of Team GB's modern pentathlon quota at the Olympics in Paris this summer.

In the men's event, Seo Chang-wan secured a first World Cup win after three top-four finishes last year. The South Korean was joined on the podium by Egyptian pair Moutaz Mohamed and Ahmed Elgendy. Tokyo 2020 Olympic silver medallist Elgendy had won the opener in Cairo ahead of Mohamed, but this time had to settle for third behind his 19-year-old team-mate.

The action now moves to the Hungarian capital Budapest for round three of the World Cup from 23-28 April.
