Modern Pentathlon

The modern pentathlon is a sports contest that includes five events. The name pentathlon is derived from the Greek root of pente, meaning five.

These events are usually a 3km cross country run, epee fencing, 200 m freestyle swimming, a show jumping course on horseback, and a pistol shooting event.

Modern Pentathlon was first incorporated into the Asian Games in 1994.
