Modern Pentathlon is a sport comprising five disciplines: fencing, 200 meters freestyle swimming, show jumping, and a combined event of pistol shooting and 3200 meters cross country run. In 2021, it was announced that the horse riding event will be replaced in the future, with a cycling or obstacle event mooted as the potential replacement.
