Modern Pentathlon — Women
The modern pentathlon consists of shooting, fencing, swimming, horseback riding and running. The events are designed to be a test of wide-ranging military skills and the Olympic competition takes place over one day, as opposed to the four days allotted for earlier contests. One Ivy League woman has competed in the first ever modern pentathlon at the 2000 Games. Yale’s Emily DeRiel made the trip to Sydney, where she earned a silver medal.
