Games Of The XXXII Olympiad



Step 12 : Modern Pentathlon



     The modern pentathlon was invented by the founder of the modern olympic games, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, and was named after his good friend Baron John Pentathlon. The 'pentathlon' consisted of five aspects they thought were essential skills for the ideal soldier - riding an unfamiliar horse (so no Muffin the Mule or Bullseye from Toy Story), fighting with a pistol and sword (obviously not at the same time), swimming and running. Current pentathlons consist of the same aspects, but Muffin and Bullseye are allowed, and cross country running has been added.



Location - Mugdock Footpaths

     Modern Pentathlon : With places already having been chosen for horse riding, shooting, fencing and swimming, all that was left was to find somewhere for the cross coutry running. For cross country walking there is no finer place in the world than Mugdock. Ill hazard a guess and say the same applies for cross country running, which pretty much is just cross country walking but faster.
