Pentathlon Event Change

International Modern Pentathlon appears set for a change.

From a Sport invented by Baron Pierre de Coubertin for the Olympic Games, as ‘the officers sport’, Pentathlon appears to be changing its format, combining the run and shooting legs.

Pentathletes will have 70 seconds to shoot 5 targets, then run a 1 kilometre track, and return to the shooting range, completing the cylce 3 times, then running across the finish line.
