Modern Pentathlon

Modern pentathlon consists of five events conducted over a single day: fencing, swimming, equestrian, running, and shooting. After the first three events (fencing, swimming, equestrian), the athletes’ total scores determine the starting order for the running/shooting segment. In this final leg, athletes shoot at targets with laser pistols after running several 1,000 m stretches. The first to cross the finish line wins.

Some details

At the last Pan Am Games held in Toronto in 2015, Brazil claimed the women’s individual 1st place on the podium, while Guatemala took the 1st place in the men’s individual event. 
 

History

The original pentathlon dates back to the ancient Olympic Games and was modelled after the skills of the ideal soldier of that time.

Terminology

Épée: A thrusting sword used in fencing.
Freestyle: The stroke used in the swimming segment of the race (usually front crawl).
