Modernisation

Thus far modern pentathlon has been anything but modern. But today it took a huge step towards truly living up to its name. Fans of this beautiful sport are rightly excited: now all that’s left to do is to replace the antiquated épée with lightsaber duel and showjumping with pod racing.

Although I’m still not entirely convinced that organising shoot-and-run competitions in parks and shopping malls is sending out the right message.
