UIPM 2018 CONGRESS: PENTATHLON WORLD GATHERS FOR 70TH ANNIVERSARY CONGRESS
Delegates from across the global pentathlon community have gathered in Cyprus for the 70th Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne (UIPM) Congress.
This year’s Congress – the last before the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games – includes a gala dinner marking the 70th anniversary of UIPM, which was formed during the 1948 Olympic Games in London (GBR).
The anniversary dinner on Saturday, November 10 will be attended by dignitaries including UIPM Patron HM King Constantine and Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah, President of the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC).
This special event, featuring the UIPM 2018 Annual Awards, will take place after the first of two days of Congress, attended by more than 80 nations this year. Now a biannual event, UIPM Congress gives National Federation delegates the opportunity to vote on a range of motions proposed by themselves and by the UIPM Executive Board (EB).
