The men's modern pentathlon at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro was held on 19 August. Three venues were used: Deodoro Aquatics Centre (swimming), Deodoro Stadium (horse-riding and combined running and shooting) and Youth Arena (fencing).

The medals were presented by Timothy Fok, IOC member, Hong Kong and Klaus Schormann, President of the UIPM.

Competition format[edit]

The modern pentathlon consisted of five events, all held on the same day. The format was slightly different from the typical modern pentathlon, with two events combined at the end.[1]

  • 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.
  • Riding: A show jumping competition. Score based on penalties for fallen bars, refusals, falls, and being over the time limit.
  • Combined running/shooting: A 3 km run with pistol shooting (the athlete must hit five targets in 70 seconds) every kilometre. Starts were staggered based on points from the previous three events.
