Modern pentathlon - Modern Pentathlon: the Wackiest Event in the Olympics, Explained

Not super, but not awful.

History of Modern Pentathlon

Each match lasts up to one minute; the first fencer to score a hit wins instantly.

We had a group of pentathletes training at my barn in California for several years.

Since 1912, pentathlon skills have included running, shooting, fencing, swimming, and—oddly enough—show jumping.

So, it is important to recognize the coaches of some of the best athletes for all of their hard work to develop the world's best pentathletes.

Description: Showjumping is difficult because competitors don't have the luxury of choosing the horses they want to ride in the discipline.

    The modern pentathlon was introduced by Baron de Coubertin at the Stockholm Games in 1912, comprising pistol shooting, fencing, swimming, horse riding and running. It was his belief that this event would test “a man’s moral qualities as much as his physical resources and skills, producing thereby a complete athlete.”

Competitions begin with fencing, freestyle swimming, and equestrian show jumping that earn each participant points.
