'24 could be last for Riding in Pentathlon

Recommended Posts

Per insidethegames,biz, the horse-riding phase of the Modern Pentathlon might be eliminated after Paris 2024 and in time for Los ANgeles 2028,  

Riding discipline set to be dropped by UIPM from modern pentathlon programme (insidethegames.biz) 

Hence, here is my recommended substitute instead of boring Cycling!! 

Of course, this is NOT a Tony Estanguet-idea although he may claim credit for it! 

But, of course, to keep the name PENTATHLON, they have to retain a 5th discipline.  Instead of BORING cycling (so 1930s), how about Cake-Decorating?  They should move this up to Paris 2024 in honor of Julia Child and French cooking!! 

I never met a non-horse riding Pentathlete who could also DECORATE a beautiful cake, I DIDN'T like!!
