MODERN PENTATHLON

Qian Chen competed in MODERN PENTATHLON

Did you know?

  • Modern pentathlon is made up of five sports in four events: fencing, swimming, riding and a combined run/shoot.
  • The athletes' total scores from the first three events are converted into a time handicap, which determines the starting times for the combined run and shoot.
  • Originally the competition took place over four or five days, but a one-day format was adopted in 1996 in an effort to be more audience-friendly.
  • Three venues are being used: the Copper Box (fencing), Aquatics Centre (swimming) and Greenwich Park (riding, combined run/shoot).
  • Great Britain’s female pentathletes have won nearly half of the medals available since the women's event made its Olympic debut in 2000.
