Modern Pentathlon is often referred to as the “ true Olympic sport that mostaccurately conveys the ideals of Olympism, testing the athletes physicaland mental abilities.”
Modern pentathlon offers the ultimate test of fitness, courage and skill. Comprising of five traditional sports competed over one day, modern pentathlon has been a core part of the Olympic Games since 1912.
Athletes fence every other competitor using electric epees and this is the only discipline where competitors can influence another athlete’s score.
Athletes compete in a 50, 100 or 200m freestyle swim depending on age group.
Athletes ride an unfamiliar horse over a series of 9-12 show-jumps (which may include a double and a treble).
The laser-run is the climax to the competition and athletes begin with a handicapped start, based on the results of the previous disciplines.
Athletes shoot (laser) a series of targets followed by run over a set distance.
