The men's modern pentathlon at the 2004 Summer Olympics took place at the Olympic Modern Pentathlon Centre in Goudi Olympic Complex on 26 August. Thirty-two athletes from 20 nations participated in this event.[1]

Although the event was considered wide open, as no other athlete dominated the sport since 2000, the Eastern Europeans continued to reach the top positions in the men's competition. Russia's Andrey Moiseev won the gold medal with a score of 5,480 points. Andrejus Zadneprovskis of Lithuania won the nation's first ever Olympic medal in modern pentathlon, taking the silver. Libor Capalini of the Czech Republic, on the other hand, claimed the bronze, winning his nation's first medal in the sport since Jan Bártů in 1976.

Competition format[edit]

The modern pentathlon consisted of five events, with all five held in one day.

  • Shooting: A 4.5 mm air pistol shooting (the athlete must hit 20 shots, one at each target). Score was based on the number of shots hitting at each target.
  • Fencing: A round-robin, one-touch épée competition. Score was based on winning percentage.
  • Swimming: A 200 m freestyle race. Score was based on time.
  • Horse-riding: A show jumping competition. Score based on penalties for fallen bars, refusals, falls, and being over the time limit.
  • Running: A 3 km run. Starts are staggered (based on points from first four events), so that the first to cross the finish line wins.
