The Modern Pentathlon: A Showcase in Kicking Ass

- -

The Pentathlon was designed to showcase the skills necessary to be the ultimate warrior. Riding an unfamiliar horse, hand-to-hand combat, running, swimming, and shooting were all requirements to being a well-trained and exceptional soldier.

THEY ARE ALSO THE SKILLS NECESSARY TO BEING A BADASS. The final event of the Men's Pentathlon - WHICH INVOLVES RACING AND FIRING PISTOLS - starts at 18:45 BST today! Watch this overproduced and overdramatic trailer and get in the spirit!
