Sports Trial: Pentathlon

Modern pentathlon is a versatile sport consisting of five different sports: fencing, swimming, riding and laser run.

While fencing and riding require technical mastery and experience, swimming and running require physical performance and speed. Shooting on the other hand requires steady hands.
