Masters Modern Pentathlon Movement See Advances
The UIPM world modern pentathlon body reports major advances on behalf of the Masters Modern Pentathlon movement, with 129 athletes representing 23 nations,
among them a number former Olympians, at the 2016 Masters World Championship in Prague, Czech Republic.
Said UIPM President Dr Klaus Schormann: “Masters is an important movement and it is important that they are growing. Here we saw five continents represented – and I must say it is not about fun. I saw amazing performances. At the same time, there is some kind of friendship. It is a very important pilar of the UIPM and the board of the UIPM has given a lot of support to this movement.”
