The modern pentathlon debuted at the 1912 Olympic Games in Stockholm, comprised of the contemporary disciplines of pistol shooting, fencing, swimming, riding a horse and running. The disciplines chosen represented the diverse attributes of a good military officer: fitness (running and swimming); control and concentration (shooting); agility and speed (fencing); and determination, adaptability and courage (riding and jumping with an unfamiliar horse).
