Deta Hedman won the Ladies British Pentathlon for a fourth time earlier today.

The ladies world number one added to her triumphs in the competition in 2010, 2013 and 2014 to scoop the £1,000 top prize.

The event, which was the curtain-raiser to the England Open weekend, saw 20 ladies compete for the title and was played over 24 rounds, including 1001, 2001, shanghai, halve it and round the board.

Trina Gulliver was the defending champion and was bidding to win the tournament for a record ninth time, but she had to settle for third place as Hedman came out on top at Bunn Leisure, in Selsey.

Claire Brookin held the lead through most of the early rounds, before Hedman edged herself in front at the top by the end of the ninth game.

It was a lead which she would not relinquish, as Hedman finished with a winning points total of 343, 39 points ahead of nearest challenger Lorraine Winstanley in second place.

Gulliver’s points haul of 274 secured her third spot, while Rachna David completed the money places with 270 points to claim fourth.

The England Open weekend continues this evening with a mixed pairs tournament, with tomorrow seeing the England National Singles take place.
