Who Won the 2022 UIPM Pentathlon World Championships?
Over 150 athletes from 35 nations competed in modern pentathlon individual and relay events from July 24 through today, marking the 61st edition of the multi-discipline event.
With a significant change looming in the structure of the sport for after Paris 2024, this Championship year is likely one of the last featuring the (newer) traditional format of fencing > swimming > riding (show jumping) > laser run (a combined run with shooting). Post-2024, an obstacle race is planned to replace the riding portion.
Until then, let's celebrate the 2022 modern pentathlon world champions! Ten different nations won at least one medal across the seven events - including Egypt, Turkey, Mexico, Great Britain, France, and others - all led by South Korea's two gold and four overall. It truly is (already) a global sport.
