“Before all else I was a piece befuddled. It was difficult to think this game will supplant equestrianism and thought, ‘It’s a game. I see this on TV with Ninja Warrior’. I didn’t treat it in a serious way,” Chatellier told Reuters in a phone interview.

“Yet, I saw the opposition with the others, participated myself and it was loads of tomfoolery. I enjoyed it and I figure it tends to be a decent option for the equestrian discipline.

“I believe it’s really smart to test different arrangements as well. Like on the off chance that it was across 65 meters, we can likewise test across 100 meters with additional hindrances or more distance between snags… to track down the best organization.”


Current pentathlon was presented at the 1912 Stockholm Games as a portrayal of the abilities expected of a cavalry official – – fencing, swimming, equestrianism, shooting and running.

UIPM will lead a second test on Aug. 6-7 in Manila, Philippines close by a Ninja World Cup occasion and Chatellier said it would construct interest.

“My message (to pentathletes), is to not be apprehensive. Go to the tests with a positive mentality and you’ll see it’s an incredible option in contrast to the equestrian discipline,” he added.

“It’s more straightforward, more equivalent for all competitors. The soul of pentathlon won’t pass on as a result of the resigning of equestrianism since it resembles a tactical game… snags are essential for the military as well.”
