Modern Pentathlon takes centre stage at Moldovan Olympic day

Held in the Moldovan capital Chisinau earlier this month, the Olympic Festival saw thousands of kids take to the streets of the city centre all dressed with a white t-shirt to celebrate sports and the Olympic movement. Organised by the National Olympic and Sport Committee and the Republic of Moldova, 12 sports were demonstrated in the main square with Modern Pentathlon proving to be one of the most popular.

As part of the Olympic solidarity program, UIPM provided the Moldovan Modern Pentathlon Federation with some equipment, including fencing designed for young kids as well as laser pistols with targets. Laser shooting proved to be one of the major attractions of this Olympic Fest.
