Modern pentathlon: Esposito seventh

Australia's Chloe Esposito finished seventh in the women's modern pentathlon as Lithuania's Laura Asadauskaite secured the last gold on offer at the London Games.

Esposito was 28th out of 36 competitors following the opening fencing element at the Copper Box, where she won 14 of her 35 bouts.

The Olympic debutant from Sydney was then fifth fastest in the 200 metre swimming leg at the Aquatics Centre and improved to 16th overall following a strong performance in the show jumping at Greenwich Park.

Esposito started 40 seconds behind the leaders in the final combined event - pistol shooting plus a three kilometre run - before making up nine places to finish on 5248 points.

Asadauskaite broke the Olympic record with 5408 points, followed by Samantha Murray of Great Britain (5356 points) and Brazil's Yane Marques (5340).
