BIOGRAPHY

James Cooke established himself as one of the country’s finest modern pentathletes after winning the World Junior Championships in Argentina in 2011 – setting a pentathlon 200m freestyle world record in the process. 

At Rio 2016, Cooke finished 14th in the men's event, four places behind teammate Joe Choong. 

Prior to Rio, he won a third World Cup gold of his career in Kecskemet, Hungary, in April and sealed his Team GB spot at the World Championships in Moscow – finishing eighth.

That came after missing out on a spot at London 2012 behind Nick Woodbridge and Samuel Weale.
