Modern Pentathlon update

16 Dec 2011
Lausanne, Switzerland: The International Modern Pentathlon Union (UIPM) Executive Board has awarded the 2016 Senior World Championships to Moscow, Russia, which successfully organised the 2011 edition. The Argentine city of Buenos Aires will host the Centenary (64th) UIPM Congress from October 18-21, 2012. In addition, at its 63rd Congress, the UIPM approved the proposed “No Needle Policy”, which comes into force immediately.

The UIPM thus joins other International Federations and the IOC in enforcing this policy for the London 2012 Games, aiming to limit athletes’ use of syringes or any other medical equipment that could potentially be used for doping purposes. More info at www.pentathlon.org.
