Development is one of the key components of Modern Pentathlon. As a legacy of Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Movement, Pentathlon is also an educational tool. The aim of the sport is for it to be accessible to all.

UIPM is also the governing body for Modern Biathle (run-swim) and Modern Triathle (run-swim-shoot) competitions. Sub-sports aimed at initiating young and old to Modern Pentathlon.

It is also creating an initiative to provide low-cost laser pistols and targets in order to be able to spread the reach of the Triathle discipline.

UIPM has also appointed a ‘Sport for All’ Commission to oversee the development of this initiative
