Shin (KOR), who had just won the U17 title three days prior, came into the U19 showcase on the heels of a strong Fencing Ranking Round in which she topped the rankings with 25V/10D. She tacked on four Bonus Points just for good measure. Malak Ismail (EGY) and Jana Attia (EGY) were close behind with 24 and 23 victories, respectively.

Malgorzata Karbownik of Poland climbed the leadership with a stunning swim of 2min 14.90sec, with Ismail (EGY) the only other swimmer to break 2:20.

Ismail (EGY) began the Laser Run as the overall leader, only for the new boy on the block to outperform everyone else and leave everyone else vying for silver and bronze.

Shin (KOR) won gold by a 10-second lead over Ismail (EGY), despite a remarkable Laser Run performance of 11:30.16 from bronze winner Blanka Bauer (HUN), who almost grabbed Ismail (EGY) on the line.

Gabrielle Holland of the United Kingdom finished fourth, with Jiho Shin (KOR) and Dorina Dobronyi (HUN) rounding out the top six. Korea won the gold medal, Hungary took silver, and Egypt took bronze.

“I’m extremely delighted,” remarked gold medalist Shin (KOR). Laser Run was enjoyable, particularly my running. I was good at fencing and mediocre in swimming. Laser Run is my favorite discipline.

“My ambition is to earn an Olympic medal.” Woongtae Jun is my favorite athlete.”

“It feels great,” remarked gold medalist Mohamed (EGY). I was quite thrilled about this race, and I worked hard with my coaches, and every member of my family was rooting for me.

“It feels amazing to be a world champion again.” I finished third last year [after winning U17 gold in 2019]. My Laser Run is excellent, thanks to the excellent training I received from my instructor. I’d like to thank my federation, my family, my coaches, my friends, and everyone who helped me, as well as UIPM.

“My goal is to compete in the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024.”

Mixed Relay U17 2022 Modern Pentathlon European Championships

Egypt topped the podium once again at the end of an extraordinarily productive week, thanks to a tremendous Mixed Relay performance by Ganah Elgindy and Marwan Allam.

Poland (Hanna Jakubowska & Krystian Trepczyk) had the quickest Swimming performance of 2min 00.72sec, ahead of Turkey (Eda Ozrodop & Ahmet Onder) and France (Auge Leonie & Matthis Issaka), however the Laser Run saw a complete turnaround and a new podium emerge.

Egypt (Elgindy/Allam) finished 8 seconds ahead of silver medalists Emma Meszaros and Adam Peter of Hungary, while Mexico claimed their second medal of the competition with Gandhy Miranda and Daira Tavira taking bronze.

“It was a really great race, and the shooting and running felt so easy,” Elgindy (EGY) stated. “I told myself that I should give Marwen first place in order to get first place, and thank God that worked out today.”

“I was scared since the Hungarian girl was finishing well and I knew the Hungarian male finished before me yesterday,” Allam (EGY) explained, “but the second shooting was good and then for the second 600m I had some space.”

“God willing, I aspire to compete in the Olympic Games in 2028, and I know Ganah feels the same way.”

Reaction of the UIPM Executive Board

“We’ve just had eight days of competition in Lignano Sabbiadoro for the UIPM 2022 Youth World Championships for U19 and U17 athletes, and it was extraordinary to be back in Italy – one of the homes of Pentathlon,” said Rob Stull OLY, UIPM Executive Board Member and President of the NORCECA Modern Pentathlon Confederation.

“The competition itself was great; we were on the beach in Italy towards the end of summer, and the young athletes had a fantastic time.” We saw good performances from five continents and future stars here, two years before Paris 2024.

“Everyone had a fantastic day, and I’m sure the memories the kids will carry with them will be incredible.” I believe they will leave feeling energized and driven to pursue their goals in sport and in life.”

Fencing is one of the five sports that make up the Modern Pentathlon. It is a sport that requires great skill and athleticism, and is often considered to be the most demanding of the five disciplines.

Fencers will compete in a series of one-on-one matches, with the aim of scoring points by hitting their opponent with their sword. The first fencer to reach 15 points will win the match.

Swimming is another of the five sports that make up the Modern Pentathlon. It is a physically demanding discipline that tests the athletes’ stamina and endurance.

The swimming event will be a 200m freestyle race, with athletes competing against each other in a pool. The aim is to complete the distance as quickly as possible.

Show jumping is another of the five sports that make up the Modern Pentathlon. It is a test of horse and rider coordination, as well as the athletes’ ability to control their nerves under pressure.

In the show jumping event, athletes will ride their horses over a course of fences and obstacles. The aim is to complete the course without knocking down any fences or taking any penalties.

Running is the final of the five sports that make up the Modern Pentathlon. It is a test of the athletes’ speed and stamina, and is often considered to be the most demanding of the five disciplines.

The running event will be a 3,000m race, with athletes competing against each other on a track. The aim is to complete the distance as quickly as possible.

The 2022 Modern Pentathlon European Championships will be a truly exciting event, with athletes from all over Europe competing in a range of disciplines. We can’t wait to see who will come out on top!
