Tokyo to host 2019 modern pentathlon world cup final as Olympic Games test event


31 Jul 2017
Monaco, July 31, 2017: Tokyo will host the 2019 UIPM World Cup Final and the competition will double as an official Test Event for the 2020 Olympic Games, the International Modern Pentathlon Union has announced. Tokyo's application to host the competition was rubber-stamped by the UIPM Executive Board and will take place in June 2019 - 13 months before the 2020 Olympic Games.

It will allow the Tokyo 2020 organising team to create a "dress rehearsal" for the Olympic Games, where the Modern Pentathlon will take place for the first time in a venue - Tokyo Stadium - that can host all five disciplines in one day.

UIPM President Dr Klaus Schormann said: "This is a reality UIPM achieved together with the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games organising committee in 2013. Now our Modern Pentathlon community can look forward to a great opportunity to visit Tokyo in 2019 for the UIPM World Cup Final.

"Not only am I confident this will be a very well-prepared World Cup Final that lives up to the standard that has been set in recent years, I believe we will also be presented with a clear vision for the wonderful Modern Pentathlon that will take place in the Tokyo Stadium - with all five disciplines in one venue - during the Summer Olympic Games 2020.”
