Anna Maliszewska of Poland went one better than her 4th place of 2017 as she took home the bronze medal on the opening day of the championships (September 27-29).

It was an intriguing day of competition, and Gulnaz Gubaydullina of Russia, the 2017 world pentathlon champion, topped the standings in Swimming (2:06.41) and Laser Run (12:09).
