What is Modern Pentathlon?

Modern Pentathlon is a multi-discipline sport

Modern pentathlon is the only sport created by the founder of the modern Olympics specifically for its inclusion in the Games.

A day of modern pentathlon begins with fencing, followed by a 200m swim. After that, athletes compete in a showjumping round with a horse selected at random, you never ride your own horse. The finale is a combined run-and-shoot similar to the winter sport of biathlon, in which athletes must run a short course intertwined with a shooting station.
