Modern Pentathalon Reviewing Sport for Major Changes
 By Winniefield Park   •   26th Aug 2021   •   201 views   •   0 comments


The governing body of the Olympic Modern Pentathalon, UIPM, will be reviewing the riding portion of their sport after a high number of falls and refusals, and an embarrassing and distressing display of poor riding skills during the Tokyo Olympic competition. Here’s a discussion of what happened and how to view the now-viral video. CBC footage of the show jumping portion of the competition can be found at CBC - Women's Preliminary Round beginning at 2:50:00 with the much-criticized ride starting at 4:32:00.
