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.

From 1912 to 1980, the Olympic modern pentathlon was held over five days with one event per day. Now, the event is held over one day. Competitors score points in the first three events, which decide their starting position for the final combined event, composed of the shooting and running disciplines. The first one over the line wins the gold medal.

Il Pentathlon moderno

l pentathlon moderno è uno sport multidisciplinare in cui gli atleti competono in cinque diverse discipline: nuoto, scherma, equitazione, corsa e tiro a segno. L'aggettivo moderno serve a distinguerlo dall'antico pentathlon che veniva praticato nelle Olimpiadi antiche, le cui cinque prove erano salto in lungo, tiro del giavellotto, corsa, lancio del disco e lotta.

Un ringraziamento alla Federazione Pentathlon e agli Atleti:
Gloria Tocchi – bronzo europeo a squadre
Riccardo De Luca – bronzo europeo
Matteo Cicinelli – campione Europeo staffetta mista
Aurora Tognetti – campionessa europea staffetta mista
