50th WCH: History of Men Modern Pentathlon World Championships
Aug 12th Aug, 10
The 2010 UIPM Modern Pentathlon World Championships in Chengdu, China on 1-7 September 2010 will mark the 50th edition of the world’s biggest Modern Pentathlon Championships.
The first ever Modern Pentathlon World Championships were held in Stockholm, Sweden back in 1949. This event only attracted 21 participants from 7 nations and was a relatively low key event as the new competition was not accepted over night by the Pentathlon community. Bjurefelt from Sweden won the event to have the honour of being called the first ever Modern Pentathlon World Champion.
