Modern pentathlon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - The modern pentathlon is a sports contest that includes five events: pistol shooting, fencing, 200 m freestyle swimming, show jumping, and a 3 km cross-country run. Since 1949 an annual World Championship has been held in non-Olympic years. Originally the competition took place over four or five days; however in 1996 a one-day format was adopted in an effort to be more audience-friendly.
