ZIELONA GÓRA - DRZONKÓW (POL) - The first day of competition of the 48th World Military Modern Pentathlon Championship took place yesterday, September 1, with the Men`s Relay competition in which 20 military athletes from 10 countries (Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Russia and Ukraine) participated.

 

Four events and five disciplines were on the programme for the day for our military athletes: swimming, fencing, horse riding and laser-run in the magnificent facilities of the Drzonków Sports Centre.

And the least we can say is that our modern pentathletes were a credit to the Polish organisers who had done everything possible to welcome them in ideal conditions. The events were thrilling, very competitive and exciting for the spectators and television viewers, with high-level performances all day long!
