The 16th Asian Games Guangzhou2010 will be the third time Modern Pentathlon has been on the Asian Games program, but China has yet to win gold in either the men's or women's team or individual events.
That could change in Guangzhou as 2009 world champion CHEN is the favourite in the women's field.
She will face stiff competition from teammate MIAO Yihua (CHN), YANG Soo Jin (KOR) and 2002 Asian Games gold medalist Lada JIYENBALANOVA (KAZ).
Among the men, CAO is one of the heavy favorites for gold after finishing 4th in the world championships in September.
But a deep Korean team led by JUNG Hwon Ho (KOR) could take home multiple medals.
The women’s individual competition begins at 08:00 on Tuesday while the men start on Wednesday at the same time.
The point totals from the individual events will decide the team medals.
