2012 Olympics - Modern pentathlon

Modern Pentathlon celebrated its 100th anniversary at the Games in 2012 (women's competition made its debut in 2000). Championed by the founder of the modern Olympic Games, the competition requires athletes to compete in fencing, swimming, horse riding, running and shooting -- the same disciplines a French cavalry officer had to overcome to deliver a message, legend has it. Modern Pentathlon takes place August 11 and 12.
