The medals were presented by Claudia Bokel, IOC member, Germany and Klaus Schormann, President of the UIPM.

Competition formatEdit

The modern pentathlon consisted of five events, all held on the same day. The format was slightly different from the typical modern pentathlon, with two events combined at the end.[2]

  • Fencing: A round-robin, one-touch épée competition. Score was based on winning percentage.
  • Swimming: A 200 m freestyle race. Score was based on time.
  • Riding: A show jumping competition. Score based on penalties for fallen bars, refusals, falls, and being over the time limit.
  • Combined running/shooting: A 3 km run with pistol shooting (the athlete must hit five targets in 70 seconds) every kilometre. Starts were staggered based on points from the previous three events.
