People who decide to specialize in modern pentathlon deserve respect. You need to be able to be good at pistol shooting, fencing, horse-riding, swimming (for 200m freestyle) and running! The final 3.2 km cross-country run is combined with four rounds of pistol shooting - so nerves of steel are required!
