The Modern Pentathlon features five sports: fencing, swimming, equestrian, shooting & running, combined into four events. The events represent the diverse attributes of a Napoleonic officer, including fitness (running and swimming), control and concentration (shooting), agility and speed (fencing), and determination, adaptability and courage (riding and jumping an unfamiliar horse).
“As Canada’s healthy choice for pets we are always looking for unique ways to encourage and inspire pet parents to become more active. Vakalis and McCann are not only super athletes, but also super pet parents who are dedicated to including their pets in their active lifestyle,” says Walker.
The men’s Modern Pentathlon will be held on Saturday August 11 and the women’s event will be held on Sunday August 12. Only 36 men and 36 women qualify for the Pentathlon championship. Global Pet Foods wishes our athletes the best of success at the Games.
