Links In light of the International Olympic Committee's recent discussion to drop the Modern Pentathlon from the Olympic Games, the President of the United States Sports Academy, Dr. Thomas P. Rosandich and editors of the Sport Journal feel it timely and important to publish this Special Edition to bring attention to this grave matter. We add our support to retain the Modern Pentathlon as a vital and historic event in the Olympic Games. We are reprinting opinions of several International Olympic Committee members. The first is an abridged letter from Klaus Schormann, President of the Union Internationale De Penthathlon Moderne. President Schormann's letter is addressed to the President of the International Olympic Committee, Jacques Rogge. Monaco, 5 November 2002 According to our discussion during our last meeting in Lausanne, the UIPM is sending a summary of its arguments and response to the Programme Commission report which it feels appropriate to be considered for the Sport of Modern Pentathlon to remain in the Olympic Programme. These arguments which cover a larger spectrum than those developed by the Programme Commission should be given to the IOC executive Board prior to their last meeting in November, and to the IOC Members in case the matter would be voted during the session in Mexico. Answer to the arguments of the Programme Commission

Extractions: Potted History Some early history about women and the Olympics The organisers of the World Exhibition seemed unconcerned about the rights and wrongs of women competing, so their presence was not an issue. To this day there is still confusion as to which events were Olympic and which were World Fair events. So, who were the first female Olympic competitors and champion? For a sport to be Olympic in 1900 it had to be an open sport, amateur and international, not handicapped and not motorised. The long-held view was that women took part in just

Extractions: Brief History of the Olympic Games Ancient Olympic Games The Olympic Games begun at Olympia in Greece in 776 BC. The Greek calendar was based on the Olympiad, the four-year period between games. The games were staged in the wooded valley of Olympia in Elis. Here the Greeks erected statues and built temples in a grove dedicated to Zeus, supreme among the gods. The greatest shrine was an ivory and gold statue of Zeus. Created by the sculptor Phidias, it was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Scholars have speculated that the games in 776 BC were not the first games, but rather the first games held after they were organized into festivals held every four years as a result of a peace agreement between the city-states of Elis and Pisa. The Eleans traced the founding of the Olympic games to their King Iphitos, who was told by the Delphi Oracle to plant the olive tree from which the victors' wreaths were made. According to Hippias of Elis, who compiled a list of Olympic victors c.400 BC, at first the only Olympic event was a 200-yard dash, called a stadium. This was the only event until 724 BC, when a two-stadia race was added. Two years later the 24-stadia event began, and in 708 the pentathlon was added and wrestling became part of the games. This pentathlon, a five-event match consisted of running, wrestling, leaping, throwing the discus, and hurling the javelin. In time boxing, a chariot race, and other events were included.

Extractions: Modern Pentathlon Organization Competitions Events The Pentathlon consisting of running the length of the stadium, jumping, throwing the spear, throwing the discus and wrestling was introduced for the first time at the 18th Olympiad in 708 BC, probably by the Spartans as a method of training soldiers. The Pentathlon held a position of unique importance in the Games and was considered to be the climax, with the winner ranked as "Victor Ludorum". Admiration for the ancient Pentathlon was fully shared by the founder of the Modern Olympics, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, and he expressed his support for the concept of Pentathlon most eloquently and forcefully in his Memoires Olympiques published in 1931. From 1909, he tried to have the event re-introduced into the Olympic program and after two failed attempts, Pentathlon's moment came at the 14th session of the International Olympic Committee in Budapest (HUN) 1911, when as the Baron stated: The Modern Pentathlon, introduced at the 5th Olympiad in Stockholm (SWE) 1912, comprised of the contemporary sports of pistol shooting, fencing, swimming, horse riding and running, embraced the spirit of its ancient counterpart. It was De Coubertin's belief that it would be the event, above all others, that "tested a man's moral qualities as much as his physical resources and skills, producing thereby the ideal, complete athlete.

Extractions: The Modern Pentathlon is a combination of five totally different sports all working toward a common point total. The order of events has changed over the years to accommodate athletes and spectators. Shooting and fencing are now first and second, followed by swimming and horseback riding. The competition ends with a cross country run. Scoring in Modern Pentathlon is based on a standard 1,000 points for a good, or "par," performance. Excellent, or "above par" performances earn bonus points, and sub-standard, or "below-par," performances incur penalty points. The athlete who accumulates the most points over the course of the competition is the champion. Shooting Pistol shooting requires skills completely opposite from those of the other Modern Pentathlon sports. With a .177-caliber air pistol, over a 10-meter course, the athlete must suppress his natural tension and nervousness as he fires 20 shots at a stationary target. Only twice in Olympic history has a 200 point perfect score been achieved. In 1993, the introduction of a new Slowfire target with reduced bullseye, makes the perfect score that much more of an outstanding achievement. A target score of 172 will earn an athlete 1,000 pentathlon points, and each target point is worth a plus or minus 12 scoring points. The athlete has 40 seconds to fire each of the 20 shots.
