Modern Pentathlon and Biathle

Modern pentathlon combines swimming, running, shooting, fencing and riding and has the distinction of being the first Olympic sport. There are national federations in 90 countries on five continents. Biathle is a related discipline which combines the two basic elements of Modern Pentathlon, running and swimming.

"I am pleased to confirm the world modern pentathlon and biathle community will have 5,000 people swimming in more than 100 countries as part of World Swim For Malaria. This reflects the global nature of participation in modern pentathlon and biathle and mirrors the global nature of this initiative.

We will involve the broader pentathlon and biathle family i.e. athletes, their families, friends, colleagues and other young people. Our participation will be on 18th September 2005 as we have plans to coincide our involvement with the World Biathle Championships that will take place in Monaco. Although a little earlier than the 3rd December date, a high profile celebrity event in Monaco and the attendance of the world media to cover our contribution to World Swim For Malaria will we hope provide further impetus to this extraordinary initiative."
