Modern pentathlon is made up of five disciplines as athletes test their rounded skillset in fencing, swimming, riding, shooting and running. The latter two are combined in the final event of the competition.
At Rio 2016, London 2012 silver medallist Samantha Murray returned to the fold for Team GB for her second appearance at an Olympic Games while Kate French, Joe Choong and James Cooke all made their Olympic debuts.
Choong narrowly missed out on becoming Britain’s first Olympic men’s medallist when he went from second to 10th in Rio but Team GB will have high hopes this time around.
The men’s modern pentathlon was included in the Olympic competition schedule back at Stockholm 1912, while the women’s category was added for the first time at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
