Modern Pentathlon Sport Athens 2004
Athens 2004 Olympic Mascot Pin
The modern pentathlon at the 2004 Summer Olympics was held from 26 August to 27 August 2004, at the Olympic Modern Pentathlon Centre at the Goudi Olympic Complex. The men’s and women’s events each involved 32 athletes, an increase of eight from the previous games.
Modern pentathlon contained five events; pistol shooting, fencing, 200 m freestyle swimming, show jumping, and a 3 km cross-country run. They were held in that order, with each segment awarding points to competitors based on their performance in the segment. The points from each of the events were summed to give a final ranking; in addition, the running segment at the end of the day used a staggered start designed so that the order in which runners finished would be the same as their ranking by total points.
