Modern Pentathlon is one of the most loved and watched sporting events at the Olympics. Modern Pentathlon is specially created for the Olympics. Modern pentathlon was introduced in 1912 at the Stockholm games which consisted of pistol shooting, fencing, swimming, horse riding and running. The idea behind these events and this pentathlon was that it will test the physical skills as well as the moral values of the athlete. From the year 1912 to 1980, the Olympic modern pentathlon had a day for each event, which meant it was a five-day competition. Later this format was changed and now modern pentathlon is held over one day. It has also helped with the engagement of the audience as they feel more connected to the sports.
