One look and I can tell it’s pentathlon
Pentathlon is the worst Olympic sport. Like stop hurting horses with your horrid riding.
Pentathlon riding needs to stop. Its not fair to the horses
I was going to be like “hey guys she obviously got launched one bad picture isn’t enough to judge a whole sport on”
And then I went through the album. My pony club hosted national pentathlon last year, and some of the people seriously looked like they had never ridden a horse before, but I kinda hoped it would get better at the Olympics.
What the fricketty frack is pentatholon?
It’s where they have 3 different sports within a set time like swimming cycling and shooting, or running show jumping, rowing, etc etc
It’s like an endurance thingy c: they’re all done in the one day straight after the other I think!
It’s the ‘Modern pentathlon’ Swim, Shoot and Ride. The riders have never ridden the horses before but still, a lot of the above is true, few of them have riding as their top skill. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes cringeworthy. Unsure on how fair it is on the horses…
Do none of you know what ‘pent’ means???! There are FIVE elements: fencing, show jumping, swimming, shooting, and running….
